ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkey's state-run television station says authorities have issued warrants for the detention of 42 journalists as the country presses ahead with a crackdown against people with alleged links to a U.S.-based Muslim cleric in the wake of a failed coup.

TRT television said Monday the 42 include prominent journalist Nazli Ilicak, who is critical of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's rule and has opposed a government clampdown on a movement led by Fethullah Gulen, the U.S.-based cleric accused by Turkey of directing the July 15 coup attempt. Gulen has denied any involvement in the failed insurrection.

There was no information on other journalists sought for questioning.

Turkey declared a three-month state of emergency and detained more than 13,000 people in the military, judiciary and other institutions following the foiled coup.
