ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan lashed out at the European Union on Friday, castigating it for telling Ankara to change its terror laws to meet a visa deal, even as Turkey was under threat from attacks.

"We will go our way, you go yours," Erdogan said in a speech broadcast live on television, comments likely to inflame concern that a planned visa liberalization deal with Europe could fall through.
