Erdogan Announces Three-Month State of Emergency
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has declared a three-month state of emergency in the country.
In a televised address following a national security meeting, he has said the measure is needed "in order to remove swiftly all the elements of the terrorist organisation involved in the coup attempt."
He has also announced, in an exclusive interview with Al Jazera, the state of emergency will help find all the coup plotters and perpetrators as those currently arrested are already leading to other names.
Erdogan blames the failed coup attempt on US-based Muslim cleric Fethullah G?len, saying the developments last week were orchestrated by thousands of members of his movement, which Ankara sees as a terrorist organization.
