Turkish people are sharing this cartoon asking where our sympathy was for Istanbul and Ankara

French newspaper Le Monde published a cartoon on Tuesday morning to show support for the people of Brussels following terror attacks in the city.

The original cartoon by Jean Plantureux (whose pen name is Plantu), depicted the flags of the two countries enveloped.

However, many have pointed out that many people have made public displays of support for Belgium and France, while recent bombings in Ankara and Istanbul in Turkey have been relatively underreported – at least in comparison to the large amounts of interest in the Brussels and Paris attacks.
