More than 100 people to be detained in Turkey in post-coup probe

More than 100 people to be detained in Turkey in post-coup probe

Turkish authorities issued detention warrants for 115 people across 15 provinces over alleged links to last year's failed coup attempt.

The operations were aimed at breaking up the 'financial structuring' of the network of U.S.-based Fethullah Gulen, the Anadolu news agency reported.

Ankara blames Gulen for orchestrating the July 15 coup attempt last year and has repeatedly demanded the United States extradite him, so far in vain. Gulen denies involvement.
