Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday called on people to remain on the streets, warning against a fresh flare-up after an attempted coup to bring him down.

"We should keep on owning the streets tonight no matter at what stage (the coup attempt is) because a new flare-up could take place at any moment," Erdogan said in a Twitter message.
