Fourteen teachers were detained in a Manisa-based investigation into the Gulen movement, which the government accuses of masterminding the July 15, 2016 coup attempt, on Thursday morning.

According to state-run Anadolu news agency, the detainees included those who were earlier dismissed from their jobs under post-coup emergency rule.

Meanwhile, 9 teachers were put in pre-trial arrest over similar charges in a separate probe in Denizli province on Wednesday.

Turkish government has detained more than 120,000 people including thousands of teachers and academics in its crackdown against the movement since last summer.
