Turkey is holding it's largest trial ever over the July 2016 coup attempt. Almost 500 people were escorted into court amid protesters taunts, many of whom shouted 'we want the death penalt y'
The trial centers around the Akinci air base which, the government alleges, was the plotters' headquarters.
Defendants will appear in a purpose-built courtroom outside the capital Ankara, facing a number of charges from attempting to assassinate the president to murder.
