A group of protesters including the family members of more than 300 jailed military officers accused of plotting to overthrow Turkey's Islamic-rooted government, hold banners as they stage a demonstration for 'justice and fair trial' in Ankara on February 16, 2013. In September 2012 more than 300 retired and active military officers received prison sentences of up to 20 years after the court ruled that a military exercise dubbed 'Sledgehammer' in 2003 was an undercover coup plot. Pro-government circles have praised the investigations as a step toward democracy but critics have branded them witch-hunts aimed at stifling opposition.
