Turkish soldiers march during a Republic Day ceremony in Istanbul, TurkeyBy Ayla Jean Yackley and Seyhmus Cakan ISTANBUL/DIYARBAKIR, Turkey (Reuters) - The Turkish government dismissed nearly 1,400 military personnel for suspected links to a cleric it blames for an attempted coup, state media said on Sunday, hours after President Tayyip Erdogan announced sweeping changes to the armed forces. The expulsions are the latest attempt by Erdogan to bring Turkey's military - long seen as the guardians of the secular republic - firmly under government control. On Saturday he said he planned to shut down existing military academies and put the armed forces under the command of the Defence Ministry.
