MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Turkish newspaper Yeni Akit which reportedly supported al-Qaeda in the past and has strong ties with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, described the victims of Orlando shooting as "perverted homosexuals", the Daily Mail reported Monday.
"Death toll rises to 50 in bar where perverted homosexuals go!" was the headline in the newspaper as quoted by the Daily Mail.
Yeni Akit is also renown for its hateful articles on Jews, Armenians and Christians, according to Turkish think-tank the Hrant Dink Foundation, the newspaper said.
US President Barack Obama on Sunday called the deadly shooting in Orlando an "act of terror, act of hate," though the FBI said it had no immediate proofs of any direct ties between Omar and any foreign extremist groups.
