More than 15,000 education staff in Turkey have been suspended after last week's failed coup, as a purge of state officials widens still further.

A total of 1,577 university deans have also been ordered to resign and the licenses of 21,000 teachers working at private institutions revoked.
The ministry of education accused them of links to Fethullah Gulen, a US-based cleric the Turkish government says was behind the uprising, BBC reported. Gulen denies any involvement in the coup attempt.


Prime Minister Binali Yildirim vowed to take action against Mr Gulen's supporters.

"I'm sorry but this parallel terrorist organisation will no longer be an effective pawn for any country," Mr Yildirim said, according to Reuters news agency. "We will dig them up by their roots so that no clandestine terrorist organisation will have the nerve to betray people again."
The army, judiciary, security and civil service have all been targeted following the coup attempt. A total of 59,628 people have been suspended, fired or stripped of professional accreditation, according to Bloomberg calculations.
