Turkish Red Crescent criticised for selling tents after quake

THE Turkish opposition and media yesterday criticised the Red Crescent humanitarian group for selling rather than donating tents for those made homeless by the massive deadly quake this month.

According to the Cumhuriyet daily, the Turkish Red Crescent has sold 2,050 tents to the local Ahbap charity for 46 million Turkish pounds (RM10.7 million).
