Turkish Court Charges Eleven More Officers

A Turkish court has charged more officers for allegedly plotting several years ago to topple the government, increasing the number of officers jailed to 31.

The court ordered the jailing of 11 more officers, including two active duty admirals and one retired general, pending trial early today.

The development came hours after prosecutors released the former chiefs of the navy and air force and another top general without immediately charging them with being involved, saying they were unlikely to flee.
