Turkey suspends its Human Rights
Turkey will temporarily suspend the European Convention on Human Rights after announcing a state of emergency following the attempted coup.
Deputy prime minister Numan Kurtulmus said on Thursday that Turkey would follow the example set by France when it did so following last November's attacks by Isis militants in Paris.
Earlier, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the three-month state of emergency in Turkey would enable authorities to act quicker and more efficiently against the coup plotters.
Around 250 people were killed and hundreds more wounded when soldiers deployed tanks, fighter jets and military helicopters to key infrastructure in Ankara and Istanbul in a failed bid to overthrow the government last Friday.
Meanwhile, around 60,000 soldiers, police, judges, civil servants and teachers have been suspended, detained or put under investigation since the coup was defeated.
Erdogan announced the state of emergency live on TV following a meeting of the National Security Council on Wednesday.
He said: "The aim of the declaration of the state of emergency is to be able to take fast and effective steps against this threat against democracy, the rule of law and rights and freedoms of our citizens."
