SURPRISE! Turkey Extending State of Emergency Another 3 Months.

The Turkish government says the state of emergency that went into effect following the failed coup on July 15 will be extended another three months, beginning October 19. Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus spoke to reporters Monday following a Cabinet meeting.

The main opposition CHP has condemned the move.

It wasn’t a failed coup; it’s a successful purge — CHP needs to watch its back.
