ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey ordered the arrest of more than 100 soldiers and former cadets over suspected links to the network of the U.S.-based Muslim cleric who is accused of orchestrating a 2016 attempted coup, prosecutors and state media said on Friday.

Police operations targeting supporters of cleric Fethullah Gulen have been carried out regularly since the failed coup and have recently gained momentum. Gulen denies involvement in the attempt, in which 250 people were killed.
