An attempted Turkish military coup that started on Friday evening local time appeared to crumble by Saturday. At least 60 people have been killed and over 1,000 injured in violent clashes as a faction of the armed forces attempted to seize power. Gunfire and explosions rocked the main cities of Istanbul and the capital Ankara. 754 members of the Turkish armed forces were arrested for involvement in the coup. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday morning that the government is in charge, and he is in power. He said the Turkish military headquarters is now held by pro-government forces.
