Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has ordered the closure of more than 1,000 private schools and extended the period in which some suspects can be detained without charge, in his first decree since declaring a three-month state of emergency. Erdogan declared the state of emergency late on Wednesday saying it would enable authorities to swiftly and effectively root out supporters of last weekend's failed military coup in which at least 246 people were killed. The state of emergency allows the president and government to pass laws without first having to win parliamentary support and also allows them to curb or suspend rights and freedoms as they deem necessary.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the US urged G20 countries gathering on Saturday to do more to boost the slowing global economy, with Britain's vote to leave the European Union (EU) threatening to further derail growth. Central bank chiefs and finance ministers from the world's top 20 economies met in the southwestern Chinese city of Chengdu, and US Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew told journalists it was "a time of continuing uncertainty in the global economic outlook". Britain's new finance minister Philip Hammond was to deliver a message that his country was still "open for business", according to a statement from the Treasury in London.
