  • Erdogan Targets more than 50,000 in Purge after Failed Turkish Coup – Humeyra Pamuk and Ercan Gurses
    Turkey vowed to root out allies of the U.S.-based cleric, Fethullah Gulen, it blames for an abortive coup last week, widening a purge of the army, police and judiciary on Tuesday to universities and schools, the intelligence agency and religious authorities.
    Around 50,000 soldiers, police, judges, civil servants and teachers have been suspended or detained since the coup attempt, stirring tensions across the country of 80 million. (Reuters)
