Binali Yildirim added that the military are acting outside the chain of command and security forces are working to resolve the situation.



“The government elected by the people remains in charge. This government will only go when the people say so,” he remarked earlier. He said those responsible for the attempted coup will “pay the highest price”.

YIldirim insisted that the government remained in power, although unnamed military sources said that it had taken over for “democratic order”.
