Alleged Leader of Military Coup Attempt Detained in Turkey - Reports
ANKARA (Sputnik) — Late on Friday, Turkish authorities said that an attempted coup is taking place in the country. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan urged Turkish citizens to take to streets, stating that the coup attempt was carried out by a small group within the military.

The coup attempt was reportedly suppressed by early Saturday, with Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim stating that all coup supporters have been detained and the country is returning to normal life. Over 180 were killed and 1,470 were injured during the events, while nearly 3,000 people have been detained, according to the prime minister.

"The attempt of the military coup was thwarted, however it is premature to say that we have totally escaped the danger. We will keep taking our people to streets and squares until we are confident that the danger is over," Isik told journalists.
