Turkish police detained dozens of people including senior police officers and bureaucrats allegedly linked to President Tayyip Erdogan's foe Fethullah Gulen Tuesday, widening a campaign against the exiled Muslim cleric after Sunday's election.Erdogan turned against Gulen and launched a crackdown against his followers after police and prosecutors seen as sympathetic to the cleric opened a corruption investigation into Erdogan's inner circle in 2013 .The cleric has lived in exile in the United States since 1999 and is himself the subject of arrest warrants in Turkey. A prosecutor is seeking a prison sentence of up to 34 years on allegations that he sought to topple Erdogan. Erdogan's campaign against Gulen continued in the months leading up to Sunday's election.
