Shooting is being reported in the Turkish capital, Ankara, with military jets and helicopters seen in the sky above the city. According to reports on Twitter, the authorities have closed the two Bosporus bridges in Istanbul, where military jets have also been spotted flying.
Gunshots were heard in the Turkish capital of Ankara on Friday, a Reuters witness said, as military jets and helicopters were seen flying overhead. Reuters witnesses in Istanbul, Turkey's biggest city, also spotted helicopters overhead. Broadcaster NTV reported that both of Istanbul's bridges across the Bosphorus, the strait separating the European and Asian sides of the city, had been closed to traffic. It was not immediately clear if the events were related.

This is bad news. I saw that they were closing a couple of bridges in Istanbul just before the reports of gunfire in Ankara. I figured another attack or something, but this looks like it could be a boiling point in Turkey. Let's hope not. That area doesn't need one more thing at the moment.
