Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has flashed the Rabia sign in protest against Egypt after the Turkish ambassador was expelled from Cairo on Saturday.

The four-finger salute, which has become of symbol of resistance against Egypt’s post-coup interim government following the ousting of the elected president Mohamed Morsi on July 3, is a demonstration of solidarity with the hundreds of protesters who were massacred by the Egyptian army in Cairo’s Rabia al-Adawiyya and Nahda Squares on August 14.

On raising the Rabia sign in front of crowds of supporters in the Black Sea city of Trabzon, Erdogan said ‘This is also a station for Rabia, this town square is also Rabia.’
