Turkey’s government appears to have been overthrown in a coup, as the military claimed taking control over the country.

Heavily armed soldiers and military vehicles closed the two main bridges in Istanbul Friday evening, and while low-flying military jets could be heard overhead.

Tanks have been posted outside Istanbul’s Ataturk International Airport and in other locations in the city.

Access to Twitter, Facebook and YouTube is being blocked, while the state-owned TRT television has gone off the air, according to reports from inside Turkey.

“Some people illegally undertook an illegal action outside of the chain of command,“ Prime Minister Bulent Yildirim said, in comments broadcast by private channel NTV.

President Recep Erdogan is reportedly on vacation in the southern Turkish resort town of Bodrum. His status is currently unknown.

Tanks have been posted outside Istanbul’s Ataturk International Airport, while armored vehicles were photographed outside TRT offices.
