Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stalked off the stage at the World Economic Forum, red-faced after verbally sparring with Israeli President Shimon Peres over the fighting in Gaza. Erdogan was angry after being cut off by a panel moderator after listening to an impassioned response by Peres to comments made earlier by the Turkish leader, in which the Israeli president defended the recent offensive against Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Erdogan declared to Peres: "You are killing people." A finger-pointing Peres told Erdogan at Thursday's panel that he would have done the same if rockets had been falling on Istanbul.
