Turkey Coup: Heavy Gunfire In Istanbul

Heavy gunfire has been heard directed towards protesters gathered on the Bosphorus bridge in Istanbul, amidst an ongoing military coup.

Heavy gunfire has been reported, appearing to be directed towards protesters, who have gathered on Istanbul’s Bosphorus bridge, amidst an ongoing military coup in Turkey.

The protesters can be seen in footage ducking at the sound of gunfire, before rising and booing once it ceases.

However, the gunfire does no appear to have been shot directly towards the protesters, and so may have been a deterrent or warning shots by the military troops gathered at the bridge.

A livestream pointed in the direction of the Bosphorus protesters can be viewed here.
