Local jumping on stage during Erdoğan’s speech in Turkey’s Şırnak causes panic

A local man jumping on stage during President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s speech in the southeastern province of Şırnak has caused panic on Dec. 24. The incident occurred while Erdoğan was on stage greeting the audience. A man suddenly jumped on stage and tried to hug him, as the president and his guards pushed him away. The man, Hüseyin Demircan, said his “only goal is to be hugged by the president, but I think I was misunderstood.” Demircan was removed from the stage by Erdoğan’s guards and taken into custody. The man was later released.
