    CNN Turk's broadcast was stopped as soldiers entered the studio control room. Gunshots could be heard over the live television broadcast. According to a senior Turkish official, one journalist was reported shot during the studio takeover.

    A number of civilians reportedly entered the building and a struggle ensued.

    Pro-coup soldiers have seized a number of media outlets throughout the night. Earlier, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube services were halted.
