KONYA / ISTANBUL, Turkey

Turkish prosecutors issued arrest warrants for 30 suspects on Tuesday over links to the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), the group behind the 2016 defeated coup, security sources said.

Prosecutors in the central Konya province said 23 of the suspects were on-duty soldiers.

The suspects were accused of allegedly serving as FETO’s “covert imams” — senior members of the terror group — said the source, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media. 

They were sought as part of a probe into FETO’s clandestine network in the Turkish Armed Forces.
