Turkish Tank Crushes Civilians in Ankara

A Turkish tank plows through a crowd of civilians during an attempted military coup. Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said Monday that a total of 232 people — 208 government supporters he called "martyrs" and 24 coup plotters — died in the unrest. Government and military officials earlier put the total number of dead at 294, including 104 involved in the coup. The reason for the discrepancy was not immediately clear. More than 1,500 people were wounded.
