    Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has labelled the Netherlands "the capital of fascism".

    He made the comments at a rally in France to drum up support for a referendum next month that could boost presidential powers.

    Cavusoglu's attack came a day after he was barred from speaking to Turkish expats in Rotterdam.
