Turk discusses moment he lay down in front of tank


The Turkish man who lay in front of a tank to stop soldiers from taking the nation’s busiest airport has described the incredible moment he braced for death – and inspired a nation.

Metin Dogan, 40, didn’t think twice before he put himself in front of a tank and between armed soldiers attempting to take over the country on Friday – and told them to ‘go over me or go away’.
