WATCH: Turkish newsroom erupts in chaos as police arrest soldiers

A Turkish TV station’s newsroom erupted into chaos Saturday as police and civilians battled soldiers in the aftermath of an attempted military coup.


Turkish military made an attempt to overthrow the nation’s government late Friday, trying to assert control of bridges, public areas and state-run news agencies.

As part of the coup attempt, armed soldiers overtook the newsroom of CNN Turk in Istanbul, cutting out the live broadcast and trying to force employees out, according to multiple reports.

Turkish police entered the building and, along with civilians, had violent face-offs with the soldiers as they arrested them, The Guardian reported.
