Turkish prosecutors have ordered the detention of 73 air force pilots, the latest in a stream of police operations related to the investigation of July's attempted coup, the state-run Anadolu news agency said on Thursday.

The operation targeting supporters of U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gulen, whom Ankara blames for the putsch, focused on an air base in the central Turkish province of Konya and spread across 17 provinces, it said.

Other media reports said more than 200 soldiers and civilians were to be detained in coup-related operations on Thursday.
