Turkey has sacked 350 police officers in the capital Ankara, following a corruption probe targeting people close to the government.

Officials, mostly from outside the city, have been named to replace them.

Hundreds of police have been dismissed or reassigned across the country since last month's corruption investigation. Three cabinet ministers resigned after their sons were detained in the raids.

The prime minister has accused the police and judiciary of a "dirty plot".

The arrests were carried out as part of an inquiry into alleged bribery involving public tenders.
