Turkey's President lands in Istanbul

Jul 16, 2016

The aircraft carrying Turkish President Erdogan landed at Istanbul airport, reports the Anadolu Agency. He was met by a large crowd of supporters amid the coup attempt taking place in Turkey.

After initially being denied the right to land in Istanbul hours ago, the President sought asylum and permission to land in Germany which was denied, followed by a denial from Dutch authorities.

Since then, his initial request to land in Istanbul was granted.
