Turkey may make its anger known to the British government over an ITV documentary on conditions in some state-run Turkish orphanages. Sarah Ferguson, former wife of the Duke of York, participated in a visit to the orphanages, but did not reveal her identity during the trip.

ITV has defended its news gathering and its documentary. Read more here in a Guardian story.
