ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey dismissed 107 judges and prosecutors over alleged links to a failed coup in July last year, Turkish televisions reported on Friday, further widening a purge during which it dismissed around 145,000 civil servants, security personnel and academics.

Detention warrants were issued for the dismissed judges and prosecutors, Turkish TVs said.
