SEOUL -South Korea's Foreign Ministry on Saturday advised its nationals to cancel planned trips to Turkey after an attempted coup there and recommended citizens now in the country to pull out.

In a special travel warning, the ministry said it was considering sending a team of officials to aid South Koreans in Turkey and working to secure the safety of tourists stranded at Istanbul airport.

Earlier, the ministry said: "The government expresses grave concern about the situation arising from actions by a part of Turkish military and hopes the situation is swiftly brought under control through enforcement of democratic and constitutional order and stability is restored."
