Britain's outgoing Prime Minister, David Cameron, pauses during his speech in front of number 10 Downing Street, in central LondonDays before Britain's referendum on whether to leave the European Union, former Prime Minister David Cameron made an appeal to German Chancellor Angela Merkel for limits on the free movement of people, the BBC reported on Saturday. Britons voted on June 23 to exit the EU, with the issue of immigration and control of the free movement of people from the bloc a key campaigning issue for the "Leave" camp. As polls indicated immigration concerns were swaying the public towards supporting Brexit, the BBC said Cameron, who quit after the EU result, telephoned Merkel to ask if she was willing to issue a statement with other EU leaders agreeing to make concessions on free movement if Britain voted to stay.

Turkey's Supreme Military Council (YAS) will meet on Thursday, July 28, private broadcaster NTV quoted President Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday as saying, following a failed coup staged by a faction within the armed forces. Erdogan told Reuters in an interview on Thursday that he planned to restructure Turkey's armed forces and bring in "fresh blood" after the abortive coup, in which at least 246 people were killed. The YAS meeting, which takes place every August but has been brought forward by a few days this year due to the abortive coup, will be held in the presidential palace, not as is customary at the headquarters of the military General Staff, NTV quoted Erdogan as saying.
