The Myanmar Times - - World -

The Turk­ish gov­ern­ment said a to­tal of 216 sol­diers, in­clud­ing nine gen­er­als, were still at large af­ter last month’s failed coup at­tempt. “There are 216 fugi­tive sol­diers in to­tal from the Turk­ish armed forces and the gen­darmerie,” Deputy Prime Min­is­ter and top gov­ern­ment spokesper­son Nu­man Kur­tul­mus said af­ter the weekly cab­i­net meet­ing on Au­gust 8. “Nine of them are gen­er­als.” Mr Kur­tul­mus, how­ever, dis­missed claims that some of the fugi­tive sol­diers joined the ranks of the out­lawed Kur­dis­tan Work­ers’ Party (PKK) mil­i­tants.
