Turkey ruling party orders purge after coup attempt

Turkish activists protest against the failed July 15 military coup attempt during a pro-democracy rally at Gundogdu Square in Izmir, on August 4, 2016Turkey’s ruling party on Friday ordered a purge from its ranks of supporters of US-based Islamic preacher Fethullah Gulen, accused of plotting last month’s failed coup. The “urgent clean-up in the party organisation” was aimed at expelling those linked with the Fethullah Terrorist Organisation, as Ankara calls the movement blamed for the July 15 attempted putsch, state-run Anadolu news agency reported. It comes as Turkey announced a visit later this month from US Secretary of State John Kerry, which would be the first by a western diplomat since the failed effort to unseat President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government.
