The tourists walk around the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, Turkey, Saturday, March 29, 2014. Erdogan has been ensnared in a corruption scandal that has toppled four Cabinet ministers. He has provoked outrage at home and abroad with an attempt to block Twitter and YouTube and his incessant us-against-them rhetoric and conspiracy theories have alienated allies.
