The Turkish Embassy here criticized the CNN International network for “deliberately” using irrelevant Istanbul photographs on U.S.-related coronavirus developments. 

“It is deplorable that @CNN deliberately and insistently publishes photos from Istanbul in its coverage on #Covid_19 developments in US,” the embassy said on Twitter.
