Turkey: 45 army pilots detained in FETO probe

Forty-five army pilots have been detained in an anti-terror investigation into the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) on Thursday, security sources said.

A provincial security source spoke on condition of anonymity due to restriction on talking to media told Anadolu Agency on Thursday that the arrests occurred in 17 provinces across the country.

The Konya chief public prosecutor issued the arrest warrants for 73 pilots -- 71 lieutenants and two colonels -- early Thursday as part of a FETO investigation.

The apprehended pilots went through medical examinations at Konya State Hospital, the sources said.

The operation to arrest the suspects is still underway, the sources added.

Meanwhile, 26 police officers were referred to the court in Bursa province Thursday for using a smartphone messaging app, ByLock, linked to the deadly July 15 coup attempt.
