  • Turkey's armed forces face deep purge in wake of coup

    Thursday, 5:19 AM

    Turkish soldiers search for missing military personnel suspected of being involved in the coup attempt in MarmarisBy Ece Toksabay and Can Sezer ANKARA/ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey's top brass and political leaders were set to launch a sweeping purge of the armed forces on Thursday after a failed military coup that has shaken the nation of nearly 80 million people and alarmed its NATO allies. Hours before the Supreme Military Council began its annual meeting in Ankara, the armed forces dishonorably discharged nearly 1,700 personnel for their alleged role in the July 15-16 putsch in which a faction of the armed forces tried to topple President Tayyip Erdogan. Erdogan, who narrowly escaped capture and possible death on the night of the coup, told Reuters in an interview last week that the military, NATO'S second biggest, needed "fresh blood".

  • Second French church attacker was known to police: sources

    Thursday, 3:44 AM

    French CRS police stand guartd in front of the church a day after a hostage-taking in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray near Rouen in NormandyBy Chine Labbé and Michel Rose PARIS/SAINT-ETIENNE-DU-ROUVRAY, France (Reuters) - The second teenager involved in the killing of a priest in a church in France this week was a 19-year-old who was known to security services as a potential Islamist militant, police and judicial sources said on Thursday. The revelations are likely to fuel criticism by opposition politicians that President Francois Hollande's Socialist government did not do enough to stop the pair given that they were already under police surveillance. Police have identified the second man as Abdel-Malik Nabil Petitjean from a town in eastern France on the border with Germany, a judicial source told Reuters.
