As Turkey debates the re-introduction of the death penalty to punish those responsible for the failed coup of July 15th 2016 , the mayor of Istanbul has allocated space for a "Graveyard for Traitors" "HAINLER MEZARLIGI" reads his sign.
Cemeteries across Turkey have refused to bury those who plotted against the Government.
The cemetery is located in eastern Istanbul in the back corner of a construction site for a new dog shelter. It took two days to build a surrounding wall. There is nothing there but bare earth.
