17 officers have been killed in a helicopter attack of police special forces headquarters near Ankara. A bomb also hit the Turkish parliament in Ankara. Police officers and parliament workers were hurt during the explosion. Hillary Clinton released a statement asking for “calm and respect for laws, institutions, and basic human rights and freedoms…”


The Military guards shut down the two Istanbul bridges across the Bosphorus strait and the boundary between the city’s Europe and Asia sides. The Turkish military released a statement saying,

“Turkish Armed Forces have completely taken over the administration of the country to reinstate constitutional order, human rights and freedoms, the rule of law and the general security that was damaged. All international agreements are still valid. We hope that all of our good relationships with all countries will continue.”

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan was not happy with the coup saying,

“We welcome the commitment of opposition parties, which expressed their objections to the coup attempt, to democracy. I urge the Turkish people to convene at public squares and airports. There is no power higher than the power of the people. Let them do what they will at public squares and airports.”
