Turkish News on a Lighter Note

With everything that's been taking place in Turkey, it's time for something a little lighter, even  if it is from that paragon of respected journalism, The Daily Mail: "Schoolgirl, 9, passes through Turkish customs with toy passport identifying her as a UNICORN." 

A nine-year-old schoolgirl has managed to enter Turkey using a passport that identified her as a pink unicorn.

Officials at Antalya airport even stamped Emily Harris's travel documents before waving her through customs despite the official photograph showing the face of her favourite stuffed toy.

Her mother and father today admitted they were left stunned after they handed their daughter the wrong passport when they landed to start a week's holiday in the country.
There's a photo at the link.  Actually, Prime Minister Erdoğan is probably wishing he had more unicorns about now.
