US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Saturday that he had not received any request to extradite Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen, who has lived in the United States for years.

The Turkish government said that followers of Gulen, who has been living in self-imposed exile, were behind the attempted coup by a faction of the military on Friday.

Speaking during a trip to Luxembourg, Kerry said he hoped the constitutional process will be followed when dealing with those behind the attempted coup.
