Turkey targets opposition newspaper over suspected coup links
By Humeyra Pamuk | ISTANBUL
Turkish authorities have issued arrest warrants for the owner and three employees of an opposition newspaper, a police source and the paper said on Friday, part of a continuing media crackdown that has alarmed rights groups and Turkey's Western allies.
The four are accused of committing crimes on behalf of the network of U.S.-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen, they said. Gulen is blamed by Ankara for masterminding last July's failed coup against President Tayyip Erdogan, a charge he denies.
