ISTANBUL - Turkish police detained 28 people on Saturday over allegations of funding the movement of US-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen, a foe of President Tayyip Erdogan, the privately-owned Dogan News Agency reported.

The investigation included the head of a prominent business confederation TUSKON and financial police were searching for 23 other people in Istanbul and southern provinces of Konya, Kayseri and Mugla, the agency said.

Turkish police was not immediately available for comment.

The raids were the latest police operations targeting thousands of supporters of the US-based cleric, accused of leading what authorities describe as a "Gulenist Terror Group" trying to overthrow Erdogan. Gulen denies the accusations.
