Women who call themselves ''victims of the post-modern coup'' demonstrate in front of a courthouse in Ankara September 2, 2013. The trial of more than 100 senior Turkish army officers including General Ismail Hakki Karadayi, the former chief of general staff , for their alleged role in toppling Turkey's first Islamist-led government 16 years ago began in Ankara on Monday. The investigation into former prime minister Necmettin Erbakan's 1997 ouster is the latest in a series of judicial cases targeting the once all-powerful Turkish military, whose influence has been curbed sharply in the last decade. The placards read: ''We want all of our rights back. Unjust treatment for 16 years worth a thousand years.'' REUTERS/Umit Bektas (TURKEY - Tags: CIVIL UNREST CRIME LAW MILITARY POLITICS) less
