ANKARA, July 16. /TASS/. Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says the Islamic cleric and leader of Hizmet opposition movement, Fethullah Gulen, who now resides in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania, should be extradited to Turkey, he said at a meeting in Istanbul on Saturday.
Ankara says Gulen and his followers were involved in the recent military coup attempt.
On Friday night, a group of insurgents attempted a coup in Turkey. Major clashes erupted in Ankara and Istanbul. Bombs were dropped on the parliament building and the presidential palace in Ankara.
