Turkey Suspends 291 Navy Personnel

Turkey suspended from duty 168 officers and 123 non-commissioned officers from its navy over alleged links to a coup attempt in July, the defense ministry said on Sunday, as the government continues its purge.
It also dismissed 15 officers and four non-commissioned officers from the navy, the statement said.
Since the failed coup attempt, more than 110,000 judges, teachers, police and civil servants have been suspended or dismissed and 36,000 formally arrested in a crackdown that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s critics say is quashing legitimate opposition, Reuters reported.
Late on Saturday, an Istanbul court formally arrested the chairman of opposition newspaper Cumhuriyet at Istanbul’s main airport on Friday, days after nine of its executives and journalists were formally arrested.
