Turkey issues arrest warrants for eight soldiers after Greece rejects extradition - media

ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkish authorities have issued arrest warrants for the eight soldiers who fled to Greece after a failed coup attempt in Turkey in July, the state-run Anadolu news agency reported on Thursday.

The decision by the Istanbul Chief Prosecutor’s office came directly after Greece’s Supreme Court ruled against the extradition of the soldiers, accused by Turkey of being involved in the abortive putsch. The court decision is likely to anger Ankara.
