Turkish protests in Washington and Serbia

<p>Hundreds of Turkish demonstrators in the US gathered outside the White House on Sunday in support of the Turkish government.</p> <p>They called for the US to extradite cleric Fethullah Gulen, who the Turkish president holds responsible for last month’s failed coup.</p> <p>“We just want to make sure everyone knows that Fethullah Gulen basically has done very bad things to Turkey and the people,” said one protester.</p> <p>Meanwhile, in Serbia, hundreds of Turks attended a rally in support of the Turkish government. Calling it a ‘pro-democracy’ rally, they were given the support of the main Bosniak parties.</p> <p>Since the failed coup, Turkish authorities have detained and sacked tens of thousands of people, including journalists, police officers, doctors and judges, accusing them of having ties with Gulen.</p>
