There's a military coup happening in Turkey.
Turkey's state TV broadcasted that the army has taken over the country and that Erdogan has fled to an unknown location.
The military group's statement on national broadcaster TRT, read by an announcer, said that democratic and secular rule of law had been eroded by the current government. There would be new constitution, it said.
President Erdogan appeared on Turkish TV channel , on a smart phone that was held by the presenter, calling on people to get out to the streets and protest against the coup.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he would overcome what he called an uprising by a minority.He told CNN Turk by mobile phone the action was by a "parallel structure" that would bring the necessary response.
He has used this term in the past to refer to Fethullah Gulen, a US-based Muslim cleric he accuses of fomenting unrest.
Mr Erdogan said he was on his way to Ankara and those involved in the action would pay a heavy price. His office said he was in a secure location.
There are reports of gunshots and at least one loud explosion in the capital Ankara. Other reports said soldiers were inside buildings of the Turkish state broadcaster in Ankara.
UPDATE: It appears that the attempted military coup in Turkey has largely failed, even though there are reports of gun fights which are still going on across Turkey. READ MORE - http://www.dispropaganda.com/#!The-military-coup-attempt-in-Turkey-has-failed/c10cg/578a00990cf2d733894194a7
