Turkey declares the passports of nearly 11,000 people, mostly federal employees, invalid, according to Interior Minister Efkan Ala, who spoke with CNN Turk.
The people whose passports are affected already have gone into hiding or already are in police custody, government sources say.
In addition, nearly 300 soldiers in the presidential guard have been taken into custody. The 283 soldiers belong to a special forces regiment in the presidential palace in Ankara.
