Turkey: 22 FETO-tied terror suspects nabbed in Istanbul

Turkish police on Wednesday arrested 22 people in Istanbul for their alleged links to the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), the group behind the 2016 defeated coup in Turkey.

The arrests were made during raids at 33 addresses as part of investigation into terror group.

Police also seized large amount of money during the raids.

A hunt for seven suspects is underway as part of the investigation.

FETO and its U.S.-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated coup of July 15, 2016, which left 251 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.

Turkey also accuses FETO of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police and judiciary.
