Turkey revokes passport of bitter Erdogan rival Gulen

The Turkish government has cancelled the passport of ally-turned-foe Fethullah Gulen, local media reported on Tuesday, the latest salvo in a bitter feud between the US-based Muslim cleric and President Tayyip Erdogan. Erdogan and his ruling AK Party accuse Gulen and his supporters of seeking to establish a “parallel state” in Turkey and of orchestrating a corruption investigation in 2013 which briefly threatened to engulf the government. Gulen, who denies the accusations, stepped up his own criticism of Erdogan, saying he was leading Turkey “toward totalitarianism”.
