Turkey removes around 800 more police officers
The Turkish government on Thursday fired or reassigned some 800 police officers as it pressed on with a purge of the country's police force in response to a high-level graft probe, local media said.

 

Senior officers were among those removed from their posts in the latest wave of sackings in the capital Ankara and the western port of Izmir, the Hurriyet and Milliyet newspapers said on their websites. (AFP)
