http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/03/08/turkey-shuts-down-us-aid-group-mercy-corps-as-relations-with-washington-deteriorate.html the biggest non government aid group got the boot from Turkey. I wonder if the UN trying to stay relevant to the Trump administration was somehow behind the boot just a conspiracy theory. Merci Corps provides aid to 500,000 refugees.

Turkey is very unstable right now. Erdogen does not have a strong hold on power, and a good number of the most recent terrorist attacks have occurred there.
