ATHENS  - A Greek court on Wednesday blocked a second request by Turkey for the extradition of soldiers who fled to Greece in July after the failed coup attempt.

It applied to three of eight soldiers who fled. Extradition of three others was blocked last week. The case of the remaining two is pending.

Turkey alleges the men were involved in efforts to overthrow President Tayyip Erdogan and issued a second extradition request in January after Greece's top court ruled against the first, covering all eight.
