Turkey purges 13,000 police officers over failed coup
Turkey has suspended almost 13,000 police officers for their alleged links with the US-based Muslim cleric, Fethullah Gulen.
The latest wave adds to the 100,000 or so civil servants dismissed or suspended since July's failed coup.
Mr Gulen denies the government's accusation that he or his supporters orchestrated the coup.
The government in turn rejects claims it is using the coup as an excuse to get rid of its opponents.
It insists those without proven links to the coup will be freed.
