Authorities in Turkey have issued detention warrants for 249 people as part of an investigation into alleged cheating during exams to recruit staff to the country's foreign ministry between 2010 and 2013.

The Ankara Chief Prosecutor's office says 91 of the suspects were detained on Monday.

The suspects are believed to have links to the network led by Muslim preacher Fethullah Gulen, who is accused of orchestrating a failed coup attempt in 2016. Gulen denies the accusation.
