 Muslims in Boston demand US to extradite Gulen

Nearly 1000 protesters on Sunday gathered in Boston, Massachusetts, to demand the US extradite US-based Fetullah Gülen, whom Ankara accuses of masterminding and leading the attempted overthrow of its democratically elected government.

The crowds of US residents of Turkish origin from Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island, as well as Azeri nationals, Ahıska Turks, and Muslims from around the globe shouted chants and carried banners in Turkish and English that said, "We Stand with Turkey", "Obama, Extradite Gülen", and "FETO, Enough with Your Treason against the Nation", in reference to the terrorist group led by Gulen that mounted the coup attempt through rogue elements within the military.

Consul-General Ömür Budak of Turkey's Boston consulate said he was "proud" of the "unprecedented crowd" in Boston, the Daily Sabah reports.
