Greece Grants Political Asylum to Third Turkish Soldier

A third Turkish ex-military serviceman, who together with his seven colleagues sought refuge in Greece following the failed 2016 coup attempt, was granted political asylum on Thursday.
A committee of the Greek asylum service voted unanimously to grant him asylum.
Five more Turkish ex-military personnel who await a ruling on their applications for asylum, live in secret locations, guarded by Greek police.
Turkey has reacted angrily and has been demanding the extradition of the eight soldiers since the day they landed in Greece in a Turkish military helicopter.
Turkey insists that the eight servicemen were actively involved in the effort to overthrow the democratically elected Ankara government.
