Germany: More time needed on Turkish request to prosecute satirist
BERLIN - Germany said on Wednesday it is still examining a request from Turkey to prosecute a satirist who recited a sexually crude poem about Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on television.

"The assessment of the Turkish cable and of further action resulting from it is still going on," spokesman Steffen Seibert told reporters, reiterating a statement from Monday when he said it would take a few days. "We ask for patience," he said.
