Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim has withdrawn a bill that would pardon men accused of statutory rape if they marry their victims.

The government acted just before the controversial legislation went before parliament, which is dominated by the ruling AK Party.

The bill sparked protests and was met with international condemnation.

Critics said it would legitimise statutory rape and encourage the practice of taking child brides.
