More Than 260 Reported Killed in Turkish Coup Attempt

It's a bloodbath. Breakaway Turkish military aircraft and armor moved to commandeer government buildings and a TV network last night, announcing they'd deposed President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. But he used social media to rally supporters to confront rebellious troops - some appearing to be crushed by tanks in online videos - and today declared the attempt over. A top loyal general said 161 civilians and 100 rebels died, while 1,563 were detained and five generals dismissed. Gunfire is still being reported in Istanbul and Ankara, so the outcome is far from clear.

   Last night's attempted Turkish military coup led to clashes between soldiers, like these in Istanbul, and government supporters.

Turkey Purges Ranks of Dissenters After Failed Coup

Funerals have begun for the hundreds killed in this weekend's attempted coup against President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who told mourners that Turkey must "cleanse the virus from all state institutions." That appears to include arresting 6,000 people and possibly reinstating the death penalty, despite the EU urging restraint. Erdogan's blaming the failed mutiny on cleric Fethullah Gulen, a former ally who now lives in exile in Pennsylvania, and is calling for Gulen to be returned to Turkey - putting pressure on the U.S., which depends on Turkish military bases.

   Turkish Purge Ravages Universities, Civil Service
Soon there won't be anyone left. On top of the 35,000 public workers and nearly 9,000 police fired in the post-putsch purge of those thought to be disloyal to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the government's now fired 1,500 university deans. Meanwhile, WikiLeaks published 294,546 emails from Erdogan's AK Party, prompting Turkey to immediately block the site, a practice human rights advocates decry. As the U.S. reviews Turkey's demand for the extradition of alleged coup mastermind Fethullah Gulen, currently in exile in Pennsylvania, some worry the country may break with NATO entirely.
