ISTANBUL - Dozens of Turkish police officers, including a former chief of a police financial unit, were detained on Monday in a fresh wave of arrests over allegations that officers were involved in plotting against the government, local media said.

Dozens of police have been remanded in custody since July on charges that they formed a criminal organization and bugged phones, part of what new President Tayyip Erdogan has described as a plot against him.
