Istanbul mayor suggests separate cemetery for coup plotters

The mayor of Istanbul's metropolitan municipality, Kadir Topbas, ordered a space in the city which will serve as a graveyard for the plotters of the July 15 failed coup attempt as no cemetery would accept their corpses.

“I ordered a space to be saved and to call it ‘the graveyard for traitors.’ The passersby will curse the ones buried there. ‘Everyone visiting the place will curse them and they won’t be able rest in their graves,’the Hurriyet Daily cited him as saying.
