Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, speaking to a crowd in Istanbul, calls on the United States to either arrest or extradite Fethullah Gulen, the Islamic cleric based in Pennsylvania, whom he accuses of being behind the coup attempt.
US Secretary of State John Kerry says the US would consider a request for the extradition of Fethullah Gulen, the Islamic cleric based in Pennsylvania, whom Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan blames for the coup.
Speaking in Luxembourg, Kerry said the US invites the Turkish government, "as we always do, to present us with any legitimate evidence that ... withstands scrutiny, and the United States will accept that and look at it and make judgments about it appropriately."
He said the US had not yet received a formal request in regard to Gulen.
