The coup attempt was suppressed by early Saturday, with Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim stating that all coup supporters were identified and would be apprehended as the country was returning to normal life. Over 290 people have been killed and at least 1,400 injured during the attempted coup, according to the country's foreign ministry.
