MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the minister, 18 people are in critical condition.
"114 out of total injured are being treated in Ankara and Istanbul, while one other is getting treatment in Malatya and two others in hospitals in Sakarya province," Akdag told reporters as quoted by the Anadolu news agency.
On July 15, an attempted coup took place in Turkey that was suppressed the following day. Over 240 people were killed and more than 2,100 injured excluding the victims among the coup plotters, according to the country's authorities. Ankara has accused US-based dissident Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen and his followers of playing a key role in the coup.
After the attempted coup Turkey took a number of harsh measures having arrested more than 13,000 people. These steps were criticized by some EU countries that accused Turkey of violating human rights and democratic values.
