ISTANBUL (Reuters) -- Turkish authorities have formally arrested a senior army officer over possible links to an alleged right-wing group accused of plotting to topple the government, state-run news agency Anatolian said.
Lieutenant Colonel Mustafa Turkan Ecevit was arrested in Istanbul in connection with the discovery of a cache of weapons in the city including antitank weaponry, hand grenades and explosives. He was detained earlier this week."
