ANKARA Turkey issued arrest warrants for U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gulen and 66 others on Friday, state-run Anadolu Agency said, pressing President Tayyip Erdogan's campaign to root out the influence of the former ally he accuses of trying to topple him.
A former ruling AK Party deputy was among five people held in operations across Turkey, targeting the "parallel state" Erdogan accuses his former ally of secretly creating in police, judiciary and politics. The suspects all face accusations linked to association with a terrorist group.
