Erdogan flying towards Qatar now, i guess he will be welcomed there. The opposition seems to have been put to an end in the matter of minutes both in Ankara and Istanbul. They have handled the coup well, let's see how they handle the transition back to democracy and the outlawing of AKP now

Sky Italy is doing a brilliant job. In times like these, it's worth the €15 for the basic package, they are really capable of getting to news quicker than most

News of an army jet being taken down by aviation but it is yet to be verified. Aside from that, most of the aviation seemed to be on Erdogan's side up till now just like the regular army. The Golpists hailed as saviours from the crowds in areas of Istanbul

Here are regular updates from the Guardian. Interesting article about it from Foreign Affairs as well
I'd be darned.
Just about when Mr. Putin decided to "re-establish the relations" with Turkey.
