Turkish President: Those Involved in Military Coup Will Pay High Price
ANKARA (Sputnik) – According to the Turkish state-run Anadolu agency, the helicopter was downed by pro-government forces in Golbasi.

Turkish pro-government forces are now working on suppressing the military coup attempt in the country.

Earlier on Saturday, the Turkish government came under siege by a faction of military forces who sought to end the rule of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan citing the leader's drift away from the country's long-held secularist values.
