Turkish police unearth explosives in coup probe

Turkish police found explosives and bullets in Ankara in a probe linked to coup plot allegations on Monday, the state Anatolian news agency said.

The police unearthed 30 hand grenades, nine smoke bombs and hundreds of G-3 rifle bullets in the garden of a deserted house in an Ankara suburb.



Some 40 people including army officers were detained this month.

"It is obvious that these weapons were not hidden to be used against an invading army, but to be used for illegal activities," Radikal newspaper commentator Ertugrul Mavioglu said.
