Turkey Detains Editor, Others in Post-coup Crackdown

Comments Off on Turkey Detains Editor, Others in Post-coup Crackdown

Turkish authorities have arrested the editor of a leading newspaper as part of an investigation into last month's failed coup.

Turkish media said Hurriyet daily editor Dincer Gokce was detained Tuesday in Istanbul. He was one of nine journalists arrested across the country.

Earlier, Istanbul's chief prosecutor issued arrest warrants for 35 journalists suspected of having ties to the U.S.-based Turkish Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen, whom Ankara accuses of masterminding the coup.

Meanwhile, Turkish media reports a former Istanbul police chief was also detained.

Turkish authorities have detained more than 40,000 people and formally arrested about half of them in a crackdown on suspected Gulen supporters since July 15.

Tens of thousands more have been dismissed from their jobs in the police, civil service and judiciary.
