Turkey has so far detained 6,000 people over Friday's failed coup, Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag has said.

"The clean-up operations are continuing," he told state media, adding that the number of arrests will rise further.

The sweep has included high-ranking soldiers and judges. More than 50 senior soldiers were detained in the western province of Denizli on Sunday.
