Turkey seeks detention of 171 former university staff over failed coup

The legal status of almost 11,500 mobile phone users, who were "directed" to coup-linked Bylock app, will be reconsidered, prosecutors said Wednesday.

The movement denies involvement in the failed takeover, however almost 130,000 people have been detained and 60,000 arrested over Gulen links so far.
