At least 14 executives of the Kimse Yok Mu aid organization’s local branch in Samsun province were detained as part of an investigation into the Gulen movement, on Tuesday.

Turkey accuses the movement of masterminding the July 15 coup attempt while the latter denies any involvement.

Police carried out operations in Samsun and Trabzon provinces to detain 14 suspects among them teachers and small business owners.

In the meantime, police in Bursa province took into custody 33 members and executives of the Irfan Educators Union, which was earlier closed down with a government decree over links to the movement.
