Prime Minister Erdogan's party escaped being banned by only one vote. Now, say analysts, he must work quickly to bridge the divide between religious AKP supporters and secularists.
Seventeen people are killed and over 150 wounded in attacks that occurred hours before the country's highest judicial body rules on whether the governing AK party should be banned.
Two cases have the nation on edge. While the government goes after an ultranationalist gang, prosecutors want to ban the ruling party on charges of Islamist subversion.
