An attempted military coup in Turkey has ended according to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Speaking outside the airport at Istanbul, the president said, “They have pointed the people’s guns against the people. The president, whom 52 percent of the people brought to power, is in charge.”
Reports coming from the country say that at least 60 people are left dead and more than 350 have been arrested. Video from earlier in the evening showed military helicopters shooting at government buildings and taking over state held media agencies.
CNN ran video earlier in the evening showing an empty newsroom after military personnel entered and told all the staff to leave.
Another video making its rounds on Twitter shows soldiers involved in the coup surrendering.
