Many Feared Dead In Attempted Coup In Turkey (Graphic Photos)

No fewer than 60 people were killed in the Turkish capital, Ankara during an attempted coup,  Officials say. Seventeen of those killed were police officers, state-run Anadolu Agency said. This comes after Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdo─čan urged the people to take to the streets against the military coup. Citizens came out en mass to fight against the coup and insist they prefer democracy.

Around 30 Turkish soldiers who were part of a faction attempting to carry out a military coup surrendered their weapons after being surrounded by armed police in Istanbul’s central Taksim square, according to Reuters. The soldiers handed over their guns and were taken away in police vans.

However, 754 members of the armed forces have been detained. Turkish president vowed those involved will pay dearly. More photos below:
