Churches have been targeted during the failed coup attempt in Turkey, reports suggest.
Upheaval began during the evening of Friday 15th July where an attempt to overthrow the government was made.
The Catholic church of Santa Maria was attacked in Trabzon on the Black Sea where paving stones were used to break windows and hammers were used to try and break into the church.
Middle East Concern has reported that Muslim neighbours stopped the attack and contacted the priest.
In another town Malatya, windows were broken in Malatya Protestant Church as well as the door.
Pastor Tim Stone said those with issues against the church are taking advantage of the unrest.
