Government says 2,839 military personnel detained as coup put down despite pockets of resistance holding out in Ankara.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s first appearance after an attempted coup came through a FaceTime app on an Apple iPhone, held up to a TV camera by a news presenter.
“We will overcome this,” Erdogan said on Saturday as a CNN Turk anchor placed a lapel microphone near the screen, urging his supporters to take to the streets to protest the attempt to overthrow him.
“Go to the streets and give them their answer,” Erdogan said via the video chat app. “I am coming to a square in Ankara. This was done from outside the chain of command. Those who are responsible, we will give them the necessary punishment.”
