Turkish Media Accuse ‘Worldview’ Guest of Plotting Coup, Slavery in Mauritania and Global Notes by WBEZ’s Worldview


The Turkish government has accused a frequent Worldview guest of being behind the July 15, 2016 failed coup attempt to overthrow President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. We ask Henri Barkey of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars to answer Turkey’s accusations against him. We also discuss what is being done to stop slavery in Mauritania. Plus: we talk about World Music Festival Chicago (this September 9th-25th) with Radio M’s Tony Sarabia.
