The Guardian has good coverage of the events in . It looks like the coup has failed, partly because the most senior military leadership was not behind it.

A coup is the last resort and wasn’t justified. However I think President Erdoğan has a track record of trying to consolidate and abuse power, and I worry he will use this to give himself more power and impose his Islamist leanings on what has previously been a very good secular Muslim majority nation.
