Turkey's government has extended the country's state of emergency for three more months.
Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus on Monday said the National Security Council had recommended extending the state of emergency, set to expire on April 19, "to provide the continuance of measures aimed at securing the rights and freedoms of citizens."
Parliament is to meet on Tuesday to vote on the recommendation.
The decision enables the government to bypass parliament in enacting new decrees, but critics say the move could suspend rights and freedoms.
