Turkish Airlines dismissed 211 employees Monday for reasons including allegedly supporting the movement of US-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen. And 42 journalists were detained.

Turkey’s foreign minister also announced he will be removing ambassadors with connections to the failed coup and warned the US of a diplomatic crisis if it did not extradite Gulen.
