Turkey orders arrest of 85 energy and education ministry staff

Turkey ordered the arrest of 85 energy and education ministry staff in an investigation targeting the network of a US-based cleric whom Ankara accuses of orchestrating last July's attempted coup, broadcaster CNN Turk reported.

No details were immediately available on the latest arrest warrants which came after a court on Monday jailed the opposition newspaper Cumhuriyet's online editor pending trial on a charge of spreading terrorist propaganda, Reuters cited the paper as saying.

Some 50,000 people have been formally arrested in court cases targeting supporters of cleric Fethullah Gulen
