ISTANBUL: Turkey on Tuesday issued arrest warrants for 100 staff, including doctors, at the main military hospital in Ankara as part of the investigation into last month’s failed coup, local media reported.

Police were searching the Gulhane Military Medical Academy (GATA) hospital in the capital, private NTV television reported. It was not immediately clear if any suspects had been detained.

Earlier, Turkey admitted there may have been some “unfair” treatment in its post-coup crackdown as it voiced anger at Germany for barring President Recep Tayyip Erdogan from addressing a rally in Cologne.

Prime Minister Binali Yildirim told a top-ranking US general that his government remained committed to principles of law in its fight against coup plotters and called for Washington to extradite US-based preacher Fethullan Gulen “as soon as possible”.
