Turkey coup attempt: Erdogan rounds up suspected plotters
By Sheena McKenzie and Ray Sanchez
Two days after a failed military coup, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan vowed a continued crackdown on those behind it — and those perceived to have been involved — as large crowds heeded his call to fill the nation’s streets.
Thousands of soldiers have been arrested and hundreds of judiciary members removed since Friday’s uprising, which left at least 290 people dead and more than 1,400 injured in a chaotic night of violence.
Around 6,000 people have been detained and arrests will continue, according to Turkey’s foreign ministry.
Prime Minister Binali Yildirim has vowed that “they will pay a heavy price.” Erdogan said that he will remove the “viruses” from all state institutions.
