Anti-government protesters in Turkey are defiant despite the police sweeping through a camp in Istanbul. They're vowing to keep up the pressure on Prime Minister Erdogan, who has largely dismisssed their demands.
Turkey's president has hosted opposition leaders at his residence to express gratitude for their support during the recent military coup attempt. But, many are wary of what's to come, reports Diego Cupolo from Ankara.
Since the failed coup, protesters have filled squares throughout Turkey on a nightly basis. On July 15, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called on supporters to take to the streets to defend his regime from the military.
Following the failed coup attempt, Turkey is getting reacquainted with the state of emergency - something the country had experienced last in the 1990s. Aram Ekin Duran reports from Istanbul.
Amnesty International has gathered "credible evidence" that people detained in the wake of Turkey's failed coup were being tortured. Meanwhile, a rally was held in Istanbul to denounce the failed coup.
