In a fight for democracy and Turkey’s own constitution this soldier lost his life. Citizens and supporters of the Erdogan regime over powered him and took his head… and our president is supporting the latter.
A Turkish soldier has reportedly been beheaded on Istanbul’s Bosphorus Bridge by a pro-government mob.
Graphic video footage and images online show the soldier lying on the ground surrounded by a pool of blood.
He can be seen with horrific injuries after the attack.
He reportedly surrendered after last night’s failed coup attempt but was allegedly attacked by pro-government supporters.
More than 2,500 soldiers have been detained by Turkish authorities following the failed coup attempt.
More than 180 people were killed after the Turkish military tried to take control of the country in an attempted coup.

Tanks and fighter jets were seen on the streets of the capital Ankara and Istanbul as the military tried to take over the country.
Major bridges and installations in the two major cities were held by soldiers.
Shootings and explosions were also reported in the resort of Marmaris, which is popular with Britons.
