Raw: Turks join mass pro-democracy rally

The ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) decided to be present for the rally held by the secular Republican People’s Party (CHP) in Taksim Square at the heart of Istanbul, on the grounds that it is no longer the issue for one political party to denounce the coup attempt.
