Shots Fired at Turkish PM Erdogan's Convoy
Several shots were reported to have been fired at the official convoy of Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan Friday morning.
The shots reportedly went off at a bridge in Istanbul while security officers were scouting the way via which the PM was going to travel.
No one has been injured in the incident, but seven cartriges are said to have been recovered at the site.
Police have immediately started an investigation against the unknown perpetrators, says the Hurriyet daily.
After the incident, Erdogan's convoy passed through the site under increased security measures.
