    You might have dodged a bullet there.. my parents aren't home and they're not replying to my messages to them so I don't know about me yet!
    Well good luck. And it might have all died down by two weeks so you might be ok anyway. Just keep me updated on what you and your family decide to do. It's nice to know there is someone else having the same problem

    Maybe the Air Force will shoot down Erdogan's plane when he's looking to land

    I bet Merkel would feel bad about that

    How will NATO react?

    Also, if this is involving most of the military how does the present government hope to win? With police officers?

    let's hope that the winners still want to be part of NATO*
    Why do you want a provocative nation like Turkey in NATO, which shoots down Russian jets on a whim.

    They made a lot of unlawful stuff but the reason why coup is happening because they fought against FETÖ, an organisation that had many ppl in military, police and other governmental organs. They cleared almost all organs of FETÖ in Turkey (which I think the only good AKP and Erdogan did) FETÖ in military tried to stage a coup. They seem to have failed tho.

    Conspiracy theory I've seen: "It looks like it’s a coup alright. But a staged one by AKP to cement their dictatorship in"

    Erdogan trying to get to Istanbul Airport but gunfire heard there. Will he be captured?

    I don't think it's as clean cut as some of the media are making out.

    Seems like it wasn't all of the generals leading the coup attempt, at least one senior military official has been held hostage.

    Also a TV station building has just been blown up, possibly by loyalist army/air force. Lots of people on the streets as well after Erdogan's address blocking tanks and things.

    Who knows how this will end up. If things get bloody I don't think the West will be able to stand by like they did in Syria.

    Is it still safe to go to Turkey on holiday?...
    As a rule, when the weather forecast predicts lead, I'd probably advise against it.

    I'm meant to be going to Turkey on Tuesday though. How violent?! Will violence go on throughout the whole of Turkey or just in Istanbul or Ankara?
    I'd look at your holidays cancellation policy. I imagine all flights will be postponed, already planes are being turned around. Seems the army has taken the main airport, so it doesn't matter where you're staying

    Funny how the President who banned street protests is now telling people to street protest

    Also notice how it seems to be only men out protesting? I wonder why no women want to help Erdo
