FILE - In this July 24, 2010 file photo, Turkish soldiers march after a funeral ceremony for captain Ibrahim Baris Yurtseven, an army officer who was killed by Kurdish rebels in Hakkari at Turkey-Iraq border, at the Kocatepe Mosque in Ankara, Turkey. Turkey's Chief of Staff Gen. Isik Kosaner and the commanders of the navy, the army and the air force suddenly resigned Friday, July 29, 2011 to protest the arrest of dozens of generals as suspects in an alleged plot to overthrow the country's Islamic-rooted government. Many have questioned whether such a plot ever existed and see the arrests as part of prime minister Tayyip Erdogan's long-standing campaign to establish civilian authority over Turkey's once powerful military. President Abdullah Gul acknowledged Saturday that the resignation of the nation's top military commanders was unprecedented, but he said it would not cause a crisis.(AP Photo/Burhan Ozbilici, File) less
