Turkish PM pledges to root out terrorists


Turkey – Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim on Tuesday, vowed to root out any “terrorists” within the governing party with connections to a religious movement he blames for an unsuccessful military coup.

Yildirim told members of his party in the parliament that the authorities would go after AK Party members just as they are executing operations against the network throughout the country.

Separately, Yildirim also said that Kurdish militants were following through on orders to attack AKP officials in suicide bombings and assassinations.

Two AKP district officials were gunned down since Sunday in Turkey’s mainly Kurdish Southeast.
