Breaking News: Chaos in Turkey as a possibly military coup is underway.

Is Recep Tayyip Erdo─čan under attack by his own military? Reports just came in about low flying jets over the Turkey capital. The two bridges across the Bosphorus are blocked and a traffic chaos is building up in Ankara.

There are also reports of gun fire in Ankara. Turkey's Prime Minister already issued a statement saying that there is an attempt by parts of the military to seize power. He downplays the significance and calls for calm.

The social media channels including Youtube, Twitter and Facebook are all blocked now in Turkey. So we will not get any updates from citizen reporters from now on.

Military is clearing streets enforcing a curfew. This situation is far from over.

The British Telegraph has a fast moving live blog about the situation.

This coup comes as a surprise. It is difficult to say at the moment how big the movement is.
