Germany drops Turkey President Erdogan insult case

German prosecutors have dropped an investigation into a TV comedian accused of insulting Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.


The prosecutors in the western city of Mainz said they had not found sufficient evidence to continue the inquiry against Jan Boehmermann.


In March, Boehmermann recited a satirical poem on TV which made sexual references to Mr Erdogan.


Mr Erdogan then filed a complaint alleging that he had been insulted.
