Teachers of Afghan-Turk school likely arrested over Gülen links

Amid controversial arrest of Afghan-Turk high school teachers in capital Kabul, the local media outlets in Turkey have reported that the teachers have likely been arrested over the alleged links with Fethullah Gülen.

According to the local Hurriyet Daily News, the move against Afghan Turk CAG Educational NGO (ATCE), the body that runs the schools, appeared to be part of a Turkish campaign against U.S.-based Fethullah Gülen, accused of being behind last year’s failed coup attempt.

“Around 7 a.m., four of our teachers traveling in two different cars were picked up by [Afghan intelligence],” said Human Erdoğan, the chairman of ATCE.
