Baku, July 16, AZERTAC

Turkey's Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım late Friday said a group within Turkey's military was engaged in what appeared to be an attempted coup, according to Daily Sabah.

Yıldırım said on television: "It is correct that there was an attempt."

Yıldırım didn't provide details, but said Turkey would never allow any "initiative that would interrupt democracy."

"Those who are in this illegal act will pay the highest price," he added.
