The nephew of the Turkish coup mastermind Fethullah Gülen Mohammed Saeed arrested in Ankara, the capital of Turkey. AFP reported on Twitter, with reference to the state media.
Earlier preacher Gülen has asked the US government not to extradite him to Turkey.
Erdogan blamed Gulen, who currently resides in the USA, for the coup attempt. At the same time the State Department requires proof of guilt of Gulen for the extradition to his homeland.
