The main trial has commenced in the Turkish capital, Ankara, which is to include 73 coupist Fetullah Terror Organization (FETO) executives, including the leader of FETO, Fetullah Gülen, in absence.

A violent coup bid was witnessed this past July 15, mostly in Turkey's cities, when the terrorist group headed by Fetullah Gülen attempted to topple the democratically-elected government.

Turkey's government says the deadly coup plot, which martyred more than 240 people and injured more than 2,000 others, was organized by FETO members.

Gülen has been living in self-exile in the state of Pennsylvania in the United States since 1999.

Washington says it is cooperating with Ankara on the matter and asked its NATO ally to have patience, as it processes the extradition request for Gülen to meet U.S. legal requirements.
