AFP: Turkey parliament confirms emergency extended until July 1918 April 2017 | 19:12 | FOCUS News Agency
This means that the controversial measure, which has seen some 47,000 people arrested, will still be in place when Turkey marks the first anniversary of the July 15, 2016 failed putsch.
The decision by parliament was seen as a formality after the move was backed by the cabinet Monday one day following the referendum granting President Recep Tayyip Erdogan additional powers.
