Turkey arrests Turkish-Mexican man in Cambodia over Gulen links

Turkey’s intelligence agency has arrested a Turkish-Mexican dual citizen in Cambodia and brought him back to Ankara, state-run media reported, as human rights groups urged Phnom Penh to confirm Osman Karaca’s whereabouts.

The Anadolu news agency, citing anonymous security sources on Saturday, said Karaca was arrested on charges of “founding and masterminding an armed terrorist organisation”.

The agency described Karaca as the “Mexico Imam” of the movement of Fethullah Gulen, a United States-based religious leader Ankara accuses of orchestrating a failed coup in 2016.
