There are conflicting reports on an unfolding situation in Turkey.
The Turkish news agency has a statement that is supposedly from the military saying that it has ‘fully seized control’.
The military claims the action was taken to “reinstall the constitutional order, democracy, human rights and freedoms, to ensure that the rule of law once again reigns in the country, for the law and order to be reinstated.”
However, for his part, Turkey’s prime minister, Binali Yildirim has said that there was only an attempted coup by a minority of soilders in the military.

There are also reports of injuries at the Turkish parliament building.
