ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) - President Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday Turkey would seek the closure of schools in Africa linked to his ally-turned-foe Fethullah Gulen, opening a new front in his battle with the U.S.-based Muslim cleric.
Erdogan accuses Gulen and his supporters in the judiciary and police of seeking to establish a "parallel state" and of orchestrating a corruption investigation targeting Erdogan's inner circle in December 2013 as part of a coup attempt.
