From the web: “Kenan Evren, Leader of Turkey’s 1980 Coup, Dies at 97”

Gen. Kenan Evren, who led a military coup in Turkey and then imposed the harshest repression in his country’s history, leading to his trial and conviction more than 30 years later, died on Saturday at 97. By the time of the coup, on Sept. 12, 1980, Turkey had fallen into near anarchy.
