ANKARA: Turkey issued arrest warrants Friday for 300 members of the presidential guard after last week’s attempted coup, a Turkish official said.

At least 283 had already been detained, according to broadcaster CNN-Turk.

Meanwhile, the Turkish government has cancelled 10,856 passports “due to flight risk including close to 10,000 green/grey (official) passports”, with the holders either in custody or on the run, the official said.
