World - Erdogan says to close military schools, rein in armed forces


By Yesim Dikmen ANKARA, Turkey (Reuters) - Turkey will shut down its military academies and put the armed forces under the command of the defense minister, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday in a move designed to bring the military under tighter government control after a failed coup. The changes, some of which Erdogan said would likely be announced in the government`s official gazette by Sunday, come after more than 1,700 military personnel were dishonorably discharged this week for their role in the abortive July 15-16 putsch. Erdogan, who narrowly escaped capture and possible death on the night of the coup, told Reuters in an interview last week that the military, NATO`s second-biggest, needed `fresh blood`.

World - Turkey frees 758 soldiers after failed coup, Erdogan drops lawsuits


By Yesim Dikmen and Humeyra Pamuk ANKARA/ISTANBUL, Turkey (Reuters) - Turkey has released more than 750 soldiers detained after an abortive coup, state media reported on Saturday, while President Tayyip Erdogan said he would drop lawsuits against people who had insulted him, in a one-time gesture of `unity`. Turkey`s Western allies have condemned the coup, in which Erdogan has said 237 people were killed and more than 2,100 were wounded, but have been rattled by the scale of the resulting crackdown which has targeted supporters of Fethullah Gulen. The U.S.-based Muslim cleric, accused by Ankara of masterminding the July 15-16 putsch, denies the charges and Erdogan`s critics say the president is using the purges to clamp down on dissent.

World - Turkey`s Erdogan slams West for failure to show solidarity over coup attempt


By Tulay Karadeniz and Humeyra Pamuk ANKARA/ISTANBUL (Reuters) - President Tayyip Erdogan condemned Western countries on Friday for failing to show solidarity with Turkey over the recent failed coup, saying those who worried over the fate of coup supporters instead of Turkish democracy could not be friends of Ankara. Erdogan also rejected Western criticism of purges under way in Turkey`s military and other state institutions which saw more than 60,000 people detained, removed or suspended over suspected links with the coup attempt, suggesting some in the United States were on the side of the plotters. `The attitude of many countries and their officials over the coup attempt in Turkey is shameful in the name of democracy,` Erdogan told hundreds of supporters at the presidential palace in the Turkish capital.

World - Turkey`s armed forces face deep overhaul in wake of coup


By Ece Toksabay and Can Sezer ANKARA/ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey`s top brass and political leaders were poised to launch a major overhaul of the armed forces on Thursday after a failed military coup that has shaken the nation of nearly 80 million people and alarmed its NATO allies.

Erdogan, who narrowly escaped capture and possible death on the night of the coup, told Reuters in an interview last week that the military, NATO`S second biggest, needed `fresh blood`.

World - Turkish authorities dismiss military personnel, shut media outlets


ANKARA/ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey has dismissed nearly 1,700 military personnel and closed more than 130 media outlets, official sources said on Wednesday, amid a deepening crackdown that has stirred alarm among Ankara`s NATO allies following this month`s failed coup. A total of 1,684 military personnel have been dishonorably discharged, a Turkish government official said, citing their role in the July 15-16 abortive putsch, where a faction of the military attempted to topple the government. President Tayyip Erdogan has accused U.S.-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen of masterminding the failed coup and authorities have already suspended, dismissed or placed under investigation more than 60,000 soldiers, police, teachers, judges and others suspected of links to the Gulen movement.

World - Turkey detains more journalists in clampdown on cleric`s followers


By Daren Butler and Orhan Coskun ISTANBUL/ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey ordered another 47 journalists detained on Wednesday, part of a large-scale crackdown on suspected supporters of U.S.-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen, who is accused by Ankara of masterminding a failed military coup. Turkey has suspended, detained or placed under investigation more than 60,000 soldiers, judges, teachers, journalists and others suspected of ties to Gulen`s movement since the July 15-16 coup, which was staged by a faction within the military. Turkey`s army General Staff on Wednesday put the number of soldiers belonging to the Gulen network who took part in the coup attempt at 8,651, roughly about 1.5 percent of the armed forces, broadcaster NTV reported.

World - Turkey backs continued Cyprus peace talks, warns Greek Cypriots


Turkey backs U.N.-led reunification talks for Cyprus, but sees this round of negotiations as the last chance for Greek Cypriots to show a constructive approach and reach a deal, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said on Tuesday. In his first public comments on Cyprus since Turkey`s failed military coup on July 15-16, Yildirim reaffirmed Ankara`s strong support for the breakaway Turkish Cypriot state, where it keeps around 30,000 troops stationed. Both Greek and Turkish Cypriots worry that the fallout from the abortive coup could affect their reunification talks, which diplomats say now offer the best chance in generations for ending a conflict that has long soured Ankara`s ties with NATO ally Greece and with the European Union.
