ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkish prosecutors have issued detention warrants for 360 people in an operation targeting supporters of U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gulen within the army, broadcaster CNN Turk and other media reported on Wednesday.

They said the operation was focused on Istanbul and that 343 of those facing arrest were soldiers. Ankara accuses Gulen and his network of orchestrating an attempted coup last year. Gulen denies the charge.
