Some 104 coup plotters were killed after a coup attempt to bring down the Turkish government, the acting army chief said on Saturday.
"The coup attempt has been foiled," General Umit Dundar said in televised appearance, adding that 90 people -- 41 of them police and 47 are civilians -- "fell martrys." He also said many commanders were taken to "unknown locations". President Recep Tayyip Erdogan meanwhile used Twitter to call on people to remain in the streets, warning against a new flare-up.
