Police purge in Turkey spreads to regions
Police chiefs in at least 15 of Turkey's 81 provinces have been dismissed as the government struggles to contain a corruption scandal.
The chief of police in the capital Ankara was among those removed from his post, a day after 350 of his officers were reassigned or sacked.
Critics accuse Prime Minister Recip Tayyip Erdogan of purging the police, in the wake of a corruption investigation that appeared to implicate senior figures in the ruling party.
Mr Erdogan has accused the police of seeking to undermine his government.
