Turkey marks the first anniversary of a failed military coup (July 15) against the government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. In a subsequent purge, about 100,000 government employees were dismissed and 40,000 were arrested. Last April, the country's authoritarian leader further consolidated his power through a constitutional referendum.
