ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday voice recordings purportedly of him telling his son to dispose of large sums of money on the day news broke of a graft inquiry were a "treacherous attack" on his office.
In a speech to his ruling AK Party deputies in parliament, Erdogan also said the recordings, which appeared on YouTube late on Monday, were a "shameless montage," suggesting they were faked composites of his voice and that of his son Bilal.
