PUBLISHED Tue, October 04, 2016 - 11:54am EDT


According to news agency Anadolu, more than 12,000 police officers have been suspended for alleged links to Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen in Turkey. The suspensions come nearly three months after a coup attempt in the country. The number of officers suspended amounts to about 18 percent of the police force. Turkey is purging any institutions with ties to Gulen. The city of Ankara blames the reclusive cleric of masterminding the failed coup. More than 81,000 people were dismissed from various Turkish institutions in the immediate aftermath. The July 15th uprising, left 270 people dead and forced the country to declare a state of emergency.
