The studentsPresident of Turkey, Recep Erdogan, has asked the U.S President Barack Obama to clarify his stance over the murder of three Muslim students in the U.S.

A district prosecutor said on Wednesday there was no evidence that the  students – Deah Shaddy Barakat, wife Yusor Mohammad and her sister Razan – had been targeted because of their faith.
