Erdogan Strikes Back: Turkey Graft Probe Sparks Infighting (Part 2)

Neither side is blinking in Turkey. The ruling AKP continues to answer a widening graft and corruption probe with a wave of dismissals and transfers of prosecutors, judges and police. 350 posts were reassigned overnight on Monday, bringing the total to 1,800 since the case went public. After these dismissals, one senior member of the AKP has vowed that prosecutions against what Erdogan's allies are calling a coup against democracy are inevitable. Is Erdogan's old boys' network coming undone?

Produced and prepared by Anelise Borges, Haxie Meyers-Belkin and Christopher Davis
