Week after Turkey coup bid, EU slams 'unacceptable' purges

Thousands of jubilant pro-Erdogan supporters rally at the Bosphorus Bridge in Istanbul on July 21, 2016, almost a week after the failed military coupTurkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday faced growing EU criticism over an “unacceptable” crackdown that has seen tens of thousands of people detained or sacked, as supporters celebrated the defeat one week ago of the coup aimed at ending his rule. The authorities imposed a state of emergency on Thursday, strengthening powers to round up suspects behind the failed military putsch and suspending a key European rights convention. The European Union urged Turkey “to respect under any circumstances the rule of law, human rights and fundamental freedoms”, in a joint statement from foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini and enlargement commissioner Johannes Hahn.
