Turkey has ordered the arrest of 82 military personnel over suspected links to the network accused by Ankara of carrying out an attempted coup in 2016, the state-run Anadolu news agency said Tuesday.The remaining 40 suspects, including soldiers on active duty, are being sought in an operation based in the central Konya province, but carried out across 25 other provinces, Anadolu said.Almost three years after the failed coup attempt, more than 77,000 people have been jailed pending trial, while some 150,000 people from the civil service, military, and elsewhere have been sacked or suspended from their jobs under the crackdown.
