Video shows 8 Turkish servicemen before they fled Greece, Ankara says

The video shows the men walking through a military camp a few hours after the failed coup, according to Turkish authorities who have sought the men's extradition from Greece.

Three of the men in the video appear to be armed.

The video also shows the arrival of security forces at the military facility.

On Friday a Greek appeals court is hear Turkey's third appeal for the extradition of the eight servicemen.

Ankara claims to have new evidence incriminating the men in participation in the attempted coup.
