Turkish leaders met to dispel coup plot tensions after the country increased the number of senior military officers charged with planning a coup in 2003 to 20.
In an alleged Turkey coup plot, 12 senior officers have been charged with plotting a coup against the country's Islam-leaning civilian government. It appears to be an attempt to weaken the influence of the secular military, say analysts.
Last week's arrest of senior military officers and the discovery of several weapons caches deepens the investigation into a suspected secularist coup plan.
Amid daily fighting, including an clash Thursday that killed 10, unprecedented public criticism is mounting over an Oct. 3 attack.
