President Erdogan has vowed revenge for the bloody military coup that killed at least 60 people after his supporters clashed with the rebel forces in the streets of Turkey.

The Turkish president warned that the members of the military behind the plot to oust him would pay a 'heavy price for their treason' as he blamed his rival Fethullah Gulen for orchestrating the uprising.

Muslim cleric Gulen, who lives in self-imposed exile in Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania as the head of a billion dollar religious movement, has often been the scapegoat for political unrest.

As President Recep Tayyip Erdogan made his triumphant return back to Istanbul after his forces quelled the coup on Friday evening, he told the gathered masses as Ataturk Airport that those loyal to Gulen had 'penetrated the Armed Forces and the police, among other government agencies, over the past 40 years.'

'What is being perpetrated is a rebellion and a treason,' Mr. Erdogan said. 'They will pay a heavy price for their treason to Turkey.'
