Turkey Video Feature: Will the "Coup Trial" Heal Political Wounds? (Al Jazeera English)

Earlier this week in our Turkey Live Coverage, Ali Yenidunya covered the trial of plotters of a 1980 military coup, including 94-year-old former President Kenan Evren and 86-year-old former commander of the Air Force Tahsin Şahinkaya.

Al Jazeera English's Inside Story asks if the trial will heal political wounds or cause further tensions. Guests are Ergun Babahan, a columnist for Turkey's Star newspaper; Hassan Koni, a professor of International Law at the University of Culture; and Akin Unver; a lecturer in Near Eastern Studies at Princeton University.
