ANKARA, July 18. /TASS/. General Akin Ozturk, former commander of the Turkish Air Force, has confessed to prosecutors to plotting the military coup, Anadolu news agency said on Monday.
A group within the Turkish military attempted to stage a coup d’etat on Friday night, using tanks and helicopters. The attempt was botched as the plotters failed to seize any senior government officials and to gain major support among the Turkish military.
At least 208 people were killed and some 1,500 injured in the failed coup.
General Ozturk was detained on July 16 at the Akinci air base near Ankara.
