The Turkish military is claiming it's in charge of that country.

Tanks have been seen near the entrance of Ataturk Airport in Istanbul.

A witness there says all flights from the airport have been cancelled.

There have also been reports of jets and helicopters flying over the Turkish capital of Ankara.

Turkey's prime minister is calling it an attempted coup by a faction of the military.

He says those responsible for the coup will pay the highest price.
