The prosecutor who ordered the stopping and searching of aid delivery trucks belonging to the Turkish National Intelligence Agency (MIT) while on their way to Syria has been released from his post.

Aziz Takci, who was based in the south-eastern Turkish city of Adana, ordered the police operation on the trucks last week.

The operation is believed to have been part of a wider operation that has been taking place across Turkey since the anti-graft arrests of two dozen government loyalists on December 17, in what Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called a post-modern coup attempt by a 'parallel state' ahead of the local elections in March.
