This may in fact be an extremely serious event of geopolitical magnitude. Banner picture is of Turkish soldiers surrendering to the police.
A message on the website of the US consulate in Adana said Saturday that "local authorities were denying movements [onto] and off of Incirlik air base." It advised US citizens to avoid the facility until normal operations had been restored.
The sealing-off of the facility, which houses as many as 80 nuclear bombs, follows a coup attempt by a faction within Turkey's military a day earlier.
It is unclear whether aircraft from the base were hijacked by coup plotters during the overnight events. According to Turkish government officials, the jets were used to attack key buildings, including the parliament building in Ankara.
