Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan says that parliament could discuss the implementation of the death penalty.
Responding to calls from supporters in Istanbul, Erdogan says that "it is a right in a democratic country that each demand be assessed, discussed and debated."
Such a debate could take place in parliament, Erdogan says, adding that "it is also not necessary to receive permission for it from somewhere."
Amnesty International and many politicans have warned against the introduction of the death penalty in Turkey.
