A prominent journalist and his brother have been arrested in Turkey after allegedly spreading "subliminal messages" on live television one day before July's attempted coup, the state-run Anadolu news agency reported.
Ahmet Altan, founder and former editor-in-chief of Taraf newspaper, and his brother, Professor Mehmet Altan, were arrested in Istanbul on Saturday over their suspected links to Islamic cleric Fetullah Gulen, the report said.
Turkey has blamed Gulen for the coup and is currently trying to have him extradited from the United States, where he lives in self-imposed exile.
On July 15, a faction of Turkey's military announced it was seizing power in a night of aerial dogfights, military blockades and street clashes that left more than 260 people dead.
The government quickly crushed the attempted putsch and has since purged tens of thousands from the state's military and judicial branches.
The live broadcast featuring the Altan brothers was aired on Can Erzincan TV, a channel affiliated with Gulen.
That channel has since been closed down along with dozens of other media outlets suspected of links to the influential preacher. Several journalists have also been arrested as part of the crackdown.
