More than 1,500 rebels have been detained after their failed military coup that killed at least 200 and wounded more than 1,000 as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan vowed revenge for the bloody uprising.
Erdogan made his triumphant return back to Istanbul after his forces quelled the coup on Friday evening, as he warned that the members of the military behind the plot to oust him would pay a 'heavy price for their treason'.
Some 104 plotters were killed after a coup attempt to bring down the Turkish government, while 90 people - 41 of them police and 47 are civilians - fell as 'martyrs'.
President Erdogan meanwhile used Twitter to call on supporters to prevent any additional military action, adding: 'We should keep on owning the streets no matter at what stage because a new flare-up could take place at any moment.'
