Failed Coup: Turkish Soldiers Bound And Unclad
Following the surrender of some soldiers in the failed coup de'tat in Turkey, the surrendered soldiers were seen in a photograph that just surfaced online, bound and huddled together Unclad on the floor. In the above photograph, soldiers loyal to the Government, had stripped off the uniform of the other soldiers and lay them on the floor with each bound legs and hands. The group of soldiers are a part of more than 6,000 rebels to be detained in the aftermath of the failed uprising that killed at least 250 and wounded more than 1,500. This comes up as President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has vowed to purge all state institutions of supporters of an Islamist cleric his government blames for Friday's coup attempt. Speaking at a funeral in Istanbul on Sunday, Erdogan broke down in tears as he vowed to cleanse the country of the 'virus' of Fethullah Gulen supporters. He said Turkey, through the justice ministry and foreign ministry, would request the extradition of the cleric, who is based in the United States, and his backers. He has denied any involvement in the coup effort.
