    ISTANBUL/ANKARA, July 15 (Reuters) - A group within Turkey's military has attempted to overthrow the government and security forces have been called in to "do what is necessary", Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said on Friday.


    Latest on Turkey coup attempt from BreakingNews.com


    "Some people illegally undertook an illegal action outside of the chain of command," Yildirim said in comments broadcast by private channel NTV. "The government elected by the people remains in charge. This government will only go when the people say so."

    Those behind the attempted coup would pay the highest price, he added.


    Footage on local television channels showed military vehicles blocking bridges over the Bosphorus in Istanbul and tanks deployed at the city's main airport. In the capital Ankara, warplanes and helicopters roared overhead. A Reuters journalist heard gunshots.

    A Turkish official who did not want to be named said soldiers had been deployed in other cities in Turkey, but did not specify which ones.

    Dogan News Agency reported the national police directorate had summoned all police to duty in Ankara


    This would be good for world peace if successful. The Caliphate must die.

    Who do you suppose helped democratize Egypt by deposing Mubarak
    then to Morsi the democratically elected Islamist to be substituted by
    a military man who now claims to be the Democratically elected Prez of Egypt.

    I miss the days when Nation Building was considered a bad thing.
    Now it is bipartisan. RepulboCratic.
    Why?
    International profiteers I betchya!

    From what I have heard that 'elected' government is barricaded in the parliament building surrounded by the army and armor. Not very 'in charge'
