Turkish security forces arrest 228 for suspected links to Gulen movement.
MojNews-Turkish prosecutors investigating the military and justice ministry on Tuesday ordered the arrest of 228 people over suspected links to the network that Ankara says was behind a 2016 coup attempt.
There has been a sustained crackdown on alleged followers of US-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen since the failed putsch in July 2016, in which some 250 people were killed. Police still routinely carry out raids targeting suspects.
In the latest moves, prosecutors ordered the arrest of 157 people, including 101 serving officers, in an investigation of the Turkish Armed Forces.
It said the operation was based in the western province of Izmir and stretched across 43 provinces.
