Turkey says it has captured all but one of the soldiers who are accused of trying to seize the president during the failed coup. Special forces arrested another 11 soldiers overnight after a two-week manhunt near Marmaris, the BBC informs.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan was on holiday at the south-western resort on the night of the coup, but fled before his hotel was raided.

Special forces located the fugitives in a forested area, reports say. Since the failed putsch Mr Erdogan has cracked down on those suspected of being linked to the coup.
Tens of thousands of people have been detained or dismissed or suspended from roles in the military, judiciary, civil service and education

Over the weekend Mr Erdogan announced a sweeping reform of Turkey's armed forces to bring them under full civilian control. Turkish authorities accuse US-based preacher Fethullah Gulen of being behind the coup attempt, something he denies.
