At least 111 people were arrested, while 180 others were detained over the past 48 hours, according to Turkish news agencies.

Police carried out the operations in at least 11 provinces across Turkey. With most of the arrestees being civilians, those arrested over the past day also included civil servants, police officers, courthouse personnel, lawyers.
