Turkey: 350 Police officers sacked after graft scandal

Around 350 Turkish police officers were removed from their posts in Ankara overnight, in the biggest single reported police shakeup since a corruption probe rocked the government last month.

Hundreds of police have been dismissed or reassigned across the country since the graft investigation emerged on December 17 with the detention of businessmen close to the government and the sons of three cabinet ministers, who subsequently resigned.

Ankara police has not made comments on the reports.
