Turkey: New military commanders appointed to thwart secular coup attempt.
ISTANBUL: Turkey appointed new military commanders yesterday in an overhaul of its top ranks that underlined the government’s control over armed forces which once dominated political life.

Nato’s second largest army is facing multiple challenges as conflict in neighbouring Syria spills across the border and a peace process with Kurdish militants looks increasingly fragile.

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who chaired the Supreme Military Council meeting, has eroded the army’s power since his Islamist-rooted AK Party first came to power in 2002. The secularist military staged three coups between 1960 and 1980 and pushed the first Islamist-led government out of office in 1997.
