    (ANSAmed) - ISTANBUL, JUNE 10 - Turkish prosecutors issued arrest warrants Wednesday for 63 suspects over alleged links to the ''Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO)'', the group accused of being behind the 2016 failed coup attempt, said security sources. Authorities in the southern Adana province are seeking the detention of the suspects, including several dismissed police personnel in Adana, Mersin and Istanbul.

    ''FETO and its US-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated coup of July 15, 2016 which left 251 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured,'' Turkish news agency Anadolu reported. ''Turkey accuses FETO of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police and judiciary.'' Those wanted by the authorities are accused of providing money and other assistance to the network to foster its reorganisation. (ANSAmed).
