(Short summary)

There are repeated claims that the young soldiers who took part in the botched putsch thought they were on exercises.

NTV television has shown footage of a Turkish colonel and other soldiers being taken into custody at military headquarters.

The video shows them being hand-searched by special forces police, their hands behind their heads. Some are later seen kneeling on the ground, their hands still held behind their heads.

According to Hurriyet newspaper's online edition, some of the privates who were detained told interrogators they were not aware that they were part of a coup attempt. They had been told by commanders they were taking part in military maneuvers. Some said they understood that it was a coup attempt when they saw civilians climb on tanks.

US bans flights into Turkey
The US government said it has suspended all flights to Turkey, and banned all airlines from flying to the United States from Turkey due to uncertainty after an abortive coup attempt.

The Federal Aviation Administration's order, issued late on Friday, comes as the US embassy in Ankara on Saturday instructed US government employees to avoid Istanbul's Ataturk airport due to reports of sporadic gunfire.

The US embassy in Ankara added that security "at Ataturk airport is significantly diminished and US government employees have been instructed not to attempt to travel to and from Ataturk airport."

In reference to the FAA note, the embassy said that US airline carriers "are prohibited from flying to or from Istanbul and Ankara airports.

"All airline carriers, regardless of country of registry, are prohibited from flying into the United States from Turkey either directly or via third country," the embassy said.

It advised US citizens in Turkey "to seek shelter in safe places," avoid unnecessary travel, and monitor media reports.

British Airways has also suspended travel to Turkey.

Kerry: US will examine role of Gulen
Secretary of State John Kerry said that the United States will assist Turkey in the investigation of a failed coup and invited Ankara to share any evidence it has against a US-based opposition figure Fethullah Gulen.

Speaking in Luxembourg, Kerry said Washington had not yet received a formal extradition bid for the expatriate cleric, but added: "We fully anticipate that there will be questions raised about Mr Gulen."

Gulen, a reclusive Islamic preacher with a worldwide following who is regularly accused of a behind the scenes role in Turkish politics, lives in a tiny town in the Pocono Mountains of the US state of Pennsylvania.

Turkish Islamic preacher Fethullah Gulen
He has been accused by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of being behind the Thursday's boody coup attempt, although he has denied any role and condemned the miliary uprising "in the strongest terms."

The Turkish PM said that any country that stood with Gulen was at a state of "war" with Turkey.

Kerry who spoke late Friday to his Turkish opposite number Mevlut Cavusoglu by telephone, said: "We haven't received any request with respect to Mr Gulen.

"And obviously we invited the government of Turkey as we always do to present us with any legitimate evidence that withstands scrutiny and the United States will accept that and look at it and make judgments about it appropriately."

Thousands of judges purged
The Turkish government has embarked on a purge of the judiciary following the botched coup, state TV reports, in the first sign of how last night could increase Erdogan's authoritarian rule.

NTV said 2,745 judges had been removed from duty, following a decision of the High Council of Judges.

Five members of the High Judiciary Court Board were also removed. 

Greece considers asylum case of coup fugitives
Greece will examine the request for political asylum by eight Turkish soldiers who fled to Greece in a helicopter earlier on Saturday, two Greek government sources told Reuters.

Greece arrested the men after they landed in the northern Greek city of Alexandroupolis. They are due to appear before a Greek prosecutor on Sunday, one of the officials said.


Another piece of the puzzle revealing the conspiracy between the global oligarchs,Fethullah Gulen and George Soros.
