Fourteen people in Adana and Kayseri province were detained as part of an investigation into the Gulen movement, which the government accuses of leading the July 15, 2016 coup attempt, on Monday.

State-run Anadolu news agency reported that detention warrants were issued for 26 people. 14 suspects including teachers and military members who were earlier dismissed from their jobs in post-coup emergency rule were rounded up over their alleged use of the ByLock application, which Turkish authorities believe is a communication tool among Gülenists.

Tens of thousands of people, including civil servants, police officers, soldiers, businessmen and homemakers, have either been dismissed or arrested for using ByLock or having accounts at the now-closed Bank Asya since the failed coup attempt last year.
