Saudi Prince Salman’s alleged ‘evil’ remarks outrage Turkish social media users

Remarks attributed to Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman by Egyptian journalist Lamis Elhadidy sparked outrage among Turkish social media users late Tuesday.
According to Elhadidy, the heir allegedly labeled Turkey, Iran and Qatar "the devil's triangle" during a visit to Egypt.
After backlash from Turkish social media users mainly on Twitter and Facebook, the Saudi embassy in Ankara released a statement refuting Elhadidy's allegations.
"It was alleged that Saudi Crown Prince pointed to Turkey via the words 'some evil powers in the region.' We would like to state that these 'evil powers' are the Muslim Brotherhood and radical groups," the statement said.
The heir is on an official visit to Egypt. After an official meeting with President Abdel Fettah al-Sissi, who overthrew the first democratically elected president Mohammad Morsi with a bloody coup in 2013, Salman also visited the Coptic Church in line with the Kingdom's new policy of "moderate, open Islam."
