TURKEY-TRIAL-ARMY-COUP

A protestor throws back a tear gas canister during clashes with police and gendarmes blocking the access to a courthouse in Silivri, near Istanbul, on August 5, 2013, after a court decision to sentence a former army chief and other top brass to life in prison in a high-profile trial of 275 people accused of plotting to overthrow the Islamic-rooted government. Ex-military chief Ilker Basbug, along with several other army officers, were sentenced to life in prison, while 21 people were acquitted, according to the verdicts issued so far. The trial has been seen as as a key test in Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's showdown with secularist and military opponents during his decade-long rule.
