28 doctors, nurses and midwives detained over alleged coup charges

A total of 28 health workers were detained as part of an investigation into the Gülen movement, which the government accuses of masterminding a coup attempt on July 15, the pro-gov’t Sabah daily reported on Sunday.

Police carried out simultaneous operations in Eskişehir, Bursa, Giresun and Isparta provinces and took 11 doctors, one nurse, one dentist, one X-ray technician, five other nurses and nine health workers into custody.

The detainees are accused of having links to the Gülen movement.

Turkey survived a military coup attempt on July 15 that killed over 240 people and wounded more than a thousand others. Immediately after the putsch, the government along with President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan pinned the blame on the Gülen movement.

The movement denies any involvement. (Turkey Purge)
