The Turkish government ordered the closing of 131 media outlets and dismissed nearly 1,700 military personnel on Wednesday. The actions come as part of a state of emergency that was instituted after a failed military coup to unseat President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan earlier this month.

Human rights groups claim that Erdoğan is using the bid to unseat him as a chance to silence -- and detain -- his critics. We'll get the latest on the situation in Turkey.
