Turkey's state-run news agency says some 350 police officers have been removed from posts in the capital Ankara, as the government continues to battle a corruption scandal that has ensnared former Cabinet ministers.
The Anadolu Agency said the 350 were removed from posts Tuesday.
The private Dogan news agency said they were reassigned to traffic departments or police stations outside the city.
