ANKARA - Turkish police detained the former head of the state media regulator and three others on Wednesday in an investigation into an Islamic charity accused of embezzling donations and sending funds to a pro-government media outlet, state news agency Anatolian said.

The investigation is linked to a 2008 court case in Germany, in which three senior members of the charity, Deniz Feneri, were found guilty and sentenced to jail.

Turkey's ruling AK Party has denied any links to Deniz Feneri, based in Germany, but the case triggered accusations of government corruption.
