Turkey Coup : Turkish authorities round up plotters

Turkish authorities round up military personnel suspected of being involved in the failed military coup. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has announced that the country will be placed under a “state of emergency” for three months, in response to the failed coup. In a televised address on Wednesday, Erdogan said the decision was made following a meeting with members of the national security council. The state of emergency was needed “in order to remove swiftly all the elements of the terrorist organisation involved in the coup attempt,” he said at the presidential palace in Ankara.
