Turkish PM says foreign plot behind graft probe

Published: 12.21.13, 18:43 / Israel News

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened to expel foreign ambassadors on Saturday, blaming them for a vast corruption and bribery investigation mounting against people close to his government. Riot police, meanwhile, stood guard as hundreds protested against Erdogan's government.


Erdogan's accusations come after two government ministers' sons were arrested, along with several others including Suleyman Aslan, the CEO of state-owned Halkbank. In total, 24 people were jailed pending trial, accused of taking or facilitating bribes, the Dogan news agency reported. (AP)
