Turkey named more than 680 German companies in a list it has sent to German authorities over links to terrorism, a security source told Reuters on Friday.

According to Die Zeit weekly, 68 companies including Daimler and BASF were blacklisted as supporters of the Gülen movement, in a list sent to Germany’s federal police. The list also included a Turkish fast food restaurant and a late-night food store, Die Zeit said.

Reuters said Friday that the list is far greater than the newspaper reported as it includes more than 680 German firms.

At home, Turkey has confiscated 966 companies with assets of $11 billion over links to the movement so far. Meanwhile more than 120,000 people were detained over ties to the movement.

President Erdoğan earlier called on foreign governments to punish Gülen followers in their own countries.
