Obama convenes National Security Council after Turkey coup attempt: White House

Washington, DC: US President Barack Obama is convening his National Security Council on Saturday following the attempted coup in Turkey overnight, officials said.

"The president will convene a meeting with his national security and broader foreign policy team to update him on the situation in Turkey," the White House said in a statement.

The Turkish authorities said they had regained control of the country on Saturday after thwarting the coup attempt by discontented soldiers to seize power from President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that claimed more than 250 lives.
