ATHENS - A Greek court ruled against the extradition to Turkey of three Turkish soldiers who fled to Greece after an abortive coup attempt against President Tayyip Erdogan in July, their lawyer and court officials said on Monday.

Turkey said the soldiers, eight in total, were involved in a July 16 coup attempt, an allegation they have denied.

"I am very pleased with the ruling, they shouldn't have been extradited.. The court was objective," their lawyer Stavroula Tomara told Reuters.
