Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has ordered his foreign ministry to declare 10 ambassadors from western countries 'persona non grata' for calling for the release of philanthropist Osman Kavala. Persona non grata can remove diplomatic status and often results in expulsion or withdrawal of recognition of envoys.
