Turkish security services have slotxo detained a nephew of exiled cleric Fetullah Gulen overseas and brought him back to
Turkey, local media have announced.

 

Selahaddin Gulen has been accused of belonging to an outlawed organisation headed by his uncle.

 

The announcement did not say where he was detained.

 

But his wife Serriye, a teacher in Kenya, said in a video on social media that her husband had gone missing in Nairobi in
early May.

 

Turkey's Anadolu news agency published a photograph of Mr Gulen in handcuffs, with Turkish flags on each side of him.

 

The outlet did not say if his capture - carried out by Turkey's National Intelligence Organisation (MIT) - had been made
in agreement with Kenya.

 

His uncle Fetullah Gulen has been accused of masterminding a failed military coup in 2016 which killed 251 people and
injured more than 2,000.

 

Both men have denied any involvement in the attempted uprising.

 

Fetullah Gulen is regarded by followers as a spiritual leader and sometimes described as Turkey's second most powerful
man.

 

His Gulen movement runs a network of schools and charities in the US, where the preacher currently resides.

 

Turkey considers the Gulen movement a terrorist organisation, dubbing it the Fethullahist Terror Organization.

 

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has accused Fetullah Gulen of masterminding a failed military coup in 2016
which killed 251 people and injured more than 2,000.
