Thousands of supporters of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan gathered Taksim Square, Istanbul, on Thursday, waving national flags and burning effigies of the alleged coup-plotter and exiled Cleric Muhammed Fethullah Gulen.
The failed coup in Turkey has been followed by thousands of arrests and dismissals of personnel from Turkey's military, universities, judiciary, and police. Earlier on Thursday, it was announced that Turkey would temporary suspend the European convention on human rights as a results of the State of Emergency that was declared the day before.
