A tub of yoghurt and a shadow theatre puppet have raised the bar in the spectrum of passions that have long fuelled differences between Greece and Turkey. Just when the two Nato rivals appeared reconciled, a new spat has erupted over a man whose features have delighted children on both sides of the Aegean.

 

The row might have gone unnoticed had it not been preceded by a Greek pensioner suing to stop a Swedish dairy from using his image to promote its yoghurts. In principle, Minas Karatsoglu, 74, says he wasn´t against his face adorning the cartons – although he was shocked to get a call from a friend informing him it had happened. It was more, he said, that the yoghurt was branded "Turkish" and by inference the self-styled patriot from Delphi was "baptised" Turkish, too.

We already have "cacık". It´s just that Greeks have learnt it from Turks.
