AFP , Wednesday 22 Jan 2014

Turkey on Wednesday sacked or reassigned hundreds of police officers in the capital Ankara, the latest fallout from a wide-ranging corruption scandal rocking the government, local media said.

A total of 470 police officers, including department chiefs, have been removed from their posts, in the latest purge of judicial and other state institutions since the anti-graft investigation became public last month, NTV television said.
