Turkey to lift state of emergency next week

  • Turkey will next week lift the state of emergency introduced after a failed 2016 coup which granted President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's government greater powers to detain suspects.
  • The announcement comes after Erdogan chaired the first cabinet meeting since he won elections last month endowing him with sweeping new powers.
