US presidential candidates target Muslims: Erdogan

Washington: Turkey says US presidential candidates have targeted Muslims during the election campaign.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said this at the opening of a Turkish-sponsored mosque and religious complex outside Washington.

Erdogan said recent attacks in Brussels and Paris cannot compare to what countries such as Turkey and Pakistan had endured over the years in terms of violent attacks by militant groups.

Turkish President said unfortunately, we are living in a period of rising intolerance and prejudice toward Muslims in the world.
