The Turkish currency depreciates, people protest

The Turkish Lira has fallen sharply on the stock exchange, trading at around $ 13.54. The minimum wage has dropped to $ 230 and this economic crisis has sparked backlash.

Hundreds of people have gathered to protest and in their calls demand Erdogan's departure.

The crisis is felt in supermarkets, in the purchase of basic goods, but also in the trade of electronic devices. Apple for example has suspended all online sales of its iPhone in Turkey due to the devaluation of the Lira currency. Samsung has made a similar decision.
