Turkey arrests 16 people in graft probe; including ministers' sons

ANKARA, Dec 21 (Reuters) - Sixteen people were arrested in Turkey on Saturday, including the sons of two cabinet ministers and the general manager of state-owned Halkbank, during a corruption investigation, CNN Turk and other media reported.

Scores of others have already been detained in the inquiry, which poses the biggest challenge to Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan’s decade-long rule.
