3 senior FETO members brought to Turkey from Africa

Turkish intelligence officers on Tuesday brought three senior Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) members to Turkey following an anti-terror operation against the group in Gabon, a Central African country, security sources said.

The group was brought to Turkey from the capital Libreville on a private plane, the sources said on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media.

It includes: Osman Ozpinar, Ibrahim Akbas and Adnan Demironal

The FETO members are now being probed by the judiciary.

FETO and its U.S.-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated July 2015 defeated coup in Turkey, which left 250 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.

Ankara also accuses FETO of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police, and judiciary.
