Turkey's Erdogan warns Russia not to 'play with fire'
By Daren Butler and Maria Tsvetkova ISTANBUL/MOSCOW (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan warned Russia on Friday not to "play with fire", citing reports Turkish businessmen had been detained in Russia, while Moscow said it would suspend visa-free travel with Turkey.

Russia has threatened economic retaliation, a response Erdogan has dismissed as emotional and indecorous.
