ISTANBUL - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan vowed on Sunday to continue to clean the "virus" responsible for Friday's coup attempt from all state institutions - a reference to his longtime adversary, US-based cleric Fethullah Gulen.

Speaking at a funeral of people killed in Friday's violence, Erdogan said the coup attempt by the "terror group", led by Gulen, was put down by national will. He said members of the Gulen group, which he said have "ruined" the armed forces, are being arrested in all ranks within the army.
