Erdogan returns to Turkey after 'coup'

A military coup in Turkey appears to have failed as President Recep Tayyip Erdogan returned to the country after attempting to seek asylum in Europe.

The army faction had announced that it was in control of the country but was met on the streets by protests and supporters of Erdogan.

The opposition, including the pro-Kurdish HDP, bitterly opposed to Erdogan, have denounced the coup attempt.
