MOSCOW, July 16. /TASs/. The situation in Turkish cities remains relatively calm, shooting has stopped but citizens have many questions about what happened, Turkish journalists and political analyst Haqan Aksai told TASS on Saturday.
"Everything is calm now. I am currently in Izmir, no shooting here, normal life goes on in the streets," Aksai said. "According to my information, the same is true for other Turkish cities," he added.
The journalist noted that internet and TV are working well. "Everything that happened took place at night. People are, of course, surprised by what happened. Nobody knows who did this and why," he said.
There are many theories of what happened at night, Aksai continued. "Some people believe what official authorities are saying - that this (the coup attempt) was staged by religious opposition. Some people even think that the authorities staged everything by themselves in order to strengthen their own positions," he concluded.
A group of insurgents attempted a coup in Turkey overnight to Saturday. Bombs were dropped on the parliament building and the presidential palace in Ankara. According to Turkey’s prime minister, 161 people died and 1,440 more were injured, not including participants in the coup attempt.
Turkish authorities said that 2,839 military were detained after the coup attempt.
