Mass rallies across Turkey mark 2016 failed coup

Tens of thousands of people have rallied in Ankara and Istanbul, as Turkey marks the first anniversary of a failed coup.

In July 2016, a breakaway faction of the military attempted to overthrow the government and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan using tanks, warplanes and helicopters.

More than 50,000 people linked to the coup attempt have been arrested so far.
