PHOTOS: OVER 3,000 SOLDIERS ARRESTED AND STRIPPED HALF-NAKED AFTER FAILED COUP IN TURKEY.


Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has refused to rule out the death sentence for the everybody involved in the ill-fated coup on his government. The arrested are believed to appear in court soon.
The civilians really stood by their President after he released a statement on facetime which apparently motivated them to get his government back for him together with the help of the police.
Perhaps the shortest coup in history?!

The army personnels appeared half naked after being stripped of their uniform as they lay on the floor in an indoor basketball court.


Quite a few (in hundreds) judiciary members have been removed since the incidence which left over 280 people dead and even over 1,300 injured.

On Sunday, speaking at a funeral held for some of those killed during the gunfire - including the brother of his Chief Adviser, Mustafa Varank - President Tayyip Erdogan said he did not rule out bringing back the death penalty for the coup's perpetrators.


As the crowd chanted "we want the death penalty," he said, "we can't ignore the people's request in a democracy - this is your right."

"This right has to be evaluated by the appropriate authorities according to the constitution and a decision can be made," Erdogan said in the address broadcast live on TV.


"It's not anything ordinary that my young brothers lay under tank pellets; this is a manifest of faith," Erdogan said.

He also asked supporters to stay on guard.
"You should fill the squares. This isn't a 12-hour operation. We will continue determinedly."
