ANKARA - Turkey will add more ministers to its supreme military council, the government said in its official gazette on Sunday, adding that deputy prime ministers, and the heads of the justice, interior and foreign affairs ministries would become members.

The move is the latest in a series of steps taken by President Tayyip Erdogan to rein in the power of the armed forces following the failed July 15-16 coup, which saw a faction of the military attempt to topple the government.
