Turkey Forces Capture 11 Commandos On The Run After Failed Coup


Turkish forces have detained 11 commandos who were on the run after their alleged involvement in an attempt to kidnap the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, during last month’s attempted coup.

The 11 soldiers are believed to be part of a group that raided a hotel in the south-western beach town of Marmaris, where Erdoğan was on holiday with his family on the night of 15 July. The president was tipped off about the raid and escaped before the commandos arrived.

On Sunday, Turkish authorities passed a third state of emergency decree that encompassed the dismissal of almost 1,400 military personnel and placed government ministers in the top military council, thereby bringing the army under closer government control.
