Turkey reinstates over 6,000 teachers suspended after coup

AFP  |  Ankara 

Turkish authorities have reinstated over 6,000 teachers suspended after the July failed coup accused of terror links, the education ministry said today.

"6,007 personnel suspended over links to terrorist organisations have returned to their jobs," the ministry said on Twitter.

Tens of thousands of teachers were suspended or sacked over links to Kurdish militants and coup plotters since July 15 when a rogue faction tried to oust President Recep Tayyip Erdogan from power.
