Turkey's Erdogan says foreign powers responsible for "dissemination propaganda"

Nevermind the corruption scandal -- thousands rally to show their support for Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan Saturday. The allegations involve accusations of wrongdoing at a state-run bank. It has forced three ministers to resign. One minister who quit said Erdogan knew what was going on and should resign as well. Ergogan puts the blame on international meddling. (SOUNDBITE) (Turkish) TURKISH PRIME MINISTER TAYYIP ERDOGAN, SAYING: "If Turkey gets stronger, it will build up the people. They cannot accept this. International powers are behind this... Dissemination propaganda has been launched against us. There is a gang, a cabal organizing within the state." On Friday, detractors were out in force calling for Erdogan's resignation. But defiance worked for Erdogan six months ago -- when he was beset by unprecedented anti-government protests. He was accused of being authoritarian and ordered a police crackdown in which eight people died.
