Some angry mob in Turkey attacked surrendering troops after news went viral that the coup had failed. The mob punched,  kicked and hit them with sticks in anger for daring to overthrow the country’s constitutionally elected government.

The police were therefore  forced to intervene by shielding the troops and shooting into the air to disperse the angry crowd.

Below are some of the chaotic scenes in pictures……….
