ISTANBUL (AP) — An Istanbul court has released hundreds of enlisted conscripts under arrest as part of the investigation into the July 15 abortive coup, the state-run Anadolu news agency says.

After taking their testimony, prosecutors working for the Istanbul Chief Public Prosecutor's office requested the release of 758 of the 989 conscripts. An Istanbul court ruled in favor of their release on the grounds their arrests were no longer necessary and that they did not pose a flight risk.

Among those released were military high school students.

According to the latest figures by Interior Minister Efkan Ala, over 9,000 people, mostly military, have been put under arrest in the aftermath of the failed coup, which caused the deaths of over 200 people.
