it ends once and for all the possibility that you would have an anti-trump rebellion in this hall. that said in terms of temperament, style, positions on many of the issues, this is the ultimate odd couple. >> let's talk convention, this has been anything but a conventional race. does donald trump end up sticking to tradition when it comes to show time? >> reporter: well, he's promised to put showbiz into the convention. if you look at the list of speakers, it looks like a traditional republican convention with one exception. there are a lot of trumps, i count a half dozen trumps with major speaking roles. all of his adult children and his wife. melania. this is a trump family affair. >> the rest of the team joins you soon. our special coverage of the gop convention kicks off tomorrow beginning with "this week" live from cleveland. other top story, turkey in chaos in the wake of a failed coup attempt.
more than 160 people killed when military rebels tried to overthrow the government. soldiers blocking bridges. helicopters opening fire. hundreds waving flags rallying in front of parliament. turkey's president is vowing those responsible will pay a heavy price. alex marquardt is in istanbul. reporter: tonight, the military coup now a clear failure. supporters of turkey's president and flooding istanbul's streets waving flags and marching triumphantly. this man telling us it is a great victory for democracy. the president proving he's a great leader. this just 24 hours after chaos broke out across the country. at around 10:30 pm local time, troops in camouflage shut down two major bridges in istanbul. fighter jets flew low overhead. helicopters hovering above the blasts at the turkish parliament
shattering glass and ripping doors off their hinges. >> every time you hear weird low flying planes you panic. it was like a third world war or something. >> reporter: gunfire in the streets as tanks drove on the highway. the insurgents shutting down the airport. taking positions at the entrance. travelers were stranded including many americans. the u.s. embassy tweeting a warning. "us citizens in turkey should shelter in place and stay indoors." a state tv anchor reading a statement from coup leaders declaring martial law. but in the early hours of morning, with istanbul's airport re-taken, president erdogen dramatically vows to crush the uprising and called on supporters to confront the rebels. and as day breaks, the soldiers on their heels surrounded by crowds and police. many surrender, some beaten by mobs, their tanks and uniforms littering the streets. president and supporters still out in full force tonight. he blames the attempted coup on
what he called a small faction within the military supported by a turkish cleric who lives in pennsylvania. today he demanded the u.s. hand this cleric over setting up a diplomatic showdown between washington and one of its most important partners in the region. cecelia. >> turkey is of course a crucial ally in the fight against isis but in the wake of that attempted coup, american led air strikes launched from a base are now on hold. let's get to abc's chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz. will it hurt america's efforts to fight isis? what are your sour sources telling you tonight. >> reporter: it certainly will cecelia for the time being as long as that air base is closed they have refueling aircraft there, surveillance aircraft, attack aircraft. because where turkey is located it is quicker to get in syria and iraq than the persian gulf. this could have an impact. the longer this stays closed.

did not indict the officers in that case sparking protests around the country. but new york city agreed to pay the family $5.9 million to settle their wrongful death claim. and now, a federal civil rights investigation is underway but moving slowly. >> what i can say is there is a tremendous level of focus at the justice department on the garner case, a very thorough effort being made, a very extensive effort being made to review all the facts and leave no stone unturned. >> reporter: the attorney defending the police officer says he "performed his duties as he was trained." in other cases, more officers are facing criminal charges in deadly incidents, according to the washington post. in 18 months, charges against officers in fatal shootings has tripled. that's little comfort for the garner family. >> we have to stop the killing stop the violence. we have to start healing. >> reporter: garner family is frustrated, waiting two years to find out if this case will ever go to trial.

i have smoked for 30 years and by taking chantix, i was able to quit in 3 months and that was amazing. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. it absolutely reduced my urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side-affect is nausea. i can't believe i did it. i quit smoking. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.

in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, taking warfarin, i had to deal with that blood testing routine. i couldn't have a healthy salad whenever i wanted. i found another way. yeah, treatment with xarelto®. hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons.
make mine an arnold palmer. same here. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. to the "index" and a frightening day at work for a store clerk in maryland. an attempted robbery and a shotgun pointed at the clerk. he grabs the gun by the barrel and he wrestles it from the robber's hands. police arrested the thief the next day. a health warning in utah, poisonous algae shutting down a popular lake. the miles long green bloom covering most of that lake. if ingested it could be deadly. it is payback time in seattle. one year ago we told you about the ceo of gravity payments surprising his employees by raising their minimum raise to $70,000. a year. now his workers are surprising
