Astrid Stawiarz/Getty Images(LONDON) — Fearing possible extradition to Turkey, Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, has canceled a visit to the United States.

After the premiere of a documentary exposing child neglect in Turkey, Turkish authorities have issued an international arrest warrant for the red-headed duchess. The documentary, which was filmed four years ago, broke some of Turkey’s strict press laws.

The film was aired on British TV and depicted shocking abuse in an orphanage outside of Ankara.
