Turkey issues warrants for over 240 soldiers

AFP, Ankara

Turkish police launched raids yesterday seeking to arrest more than 240 military personnel suspected of ties to the group blamed for a 2016 coup attempt, officials said, in an ongoing crackdown that has already seen thousands jailed.

The Istanbul public prosecutor said it issued arrest warrants for 176 active duty military personnel, including a colonel, five majors and 100 lieutenants from the different armed forces over alleged links to Muslim preacher Fethullah Gulen’s movement. Turkey says US-based Gulen ordered the failed overthrow of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Gulen vehemently denies the charge. The Izmir public prosecutor in the Aegean region issued arrest warrants for 35 suspects including 20 soldiers on active duty and 10 civilians, state news agency Anadolu said.

The agency said eight suspects had been detained already.
