Turkish police on Sunday detained the chief editor of a top newspaper as part of an ongoing operation to round up supporters of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's rival, US-exiled imam Fethullah Gulen, reports said.
The police raided the offices of the Zaman daily for a second time in the afternoon, detaining Ekrem Dumanli, as a huge crowd protested outside.
Dumanli is among at least 25 people who were detained in Sunday's raids in 13 cities across Turkey, the Anatolia news agency reported.
