The Turkish foreign minister was due to speak in the Dutch city of Rotterdam on Saturday in support of a referendum to give Mr Erdogan greater powers.

Turkey has summoned the Dutch charge d'affaires to the foreign ministry in Ankara for an explanation.

In a strange twist, Turkey's family minister will attempt to travel by land to the Dutch city of Rotterdam, Turkey's state-run Anadolu news agency said.
