Turkey orders arrest of 35 people, including nine journalists, in latest crackdown

In Turkey, arrest warrants have been issued for 35 people, including nine journalists, linked to last July’s attempted military coup.

State-run news agency Anadolu said they are accused of using an encrypted messaging app and being members of a network run by US based cleric Fethullah Gullen.

Ankara blames Gullen for orchestrating last year’s failed uprising, but the on-going crackdown, notably against journalists, has alarmed Turkey’s western allies and human-rights groups.
