Turkish prosecutors today issued detention warrants for 238 military personnel over their alleged links to a network believed to be behind a coup attempt in 2016, the state-run Anadolu agency reported. Police launched simultaneous operations in 60 provinces across the country to catch the suspects upon the order of the Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office in the western province of Izmir. The suspects, including 218 soldiers on active duty, were accused of contacting the network headed by the U.S.-based Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen via payphones.
