Turkey trial: Three army generals jailed for 'coup plot'

A Turkish court has sentenced three former army generals to 20 years in jail each for plotting a coup.

Nearly 330 other officers, including some senior military figures, were also convicted for their involvement in the plot.

34 people were acquitted. All the defendants denied the charges.

The officers were accused of plotting to bomb mosques and trying to trigger a war with Greece in order to justify a military coup.

James Reynolds reports.
