Turkey: failed coup

It has been one month since the attempted coup in Turkey, when military officers tried to take control of the country with tanks, rockets and aircraft. The uprising was crushed but tens of thousands of people have been detained or dismissed under a state of emergency imposed by President Erdogan.

Turkey’s relations with the West are becoming increasingly tense following last month’s failed coup.

Ankara is pushing Washington for the extradition of Fethullah Gulen, the man it blames for the coup attempt, and its EU membership bid is facing its worst crisis ever.
