Turkey suggests extradition exchange with the US

President Erdogan of Turkey has proposed that the US extradite Turkish preacher Fethullah Gulen, who Turkey accuses of masterminding an attempted coup in July 2016, in return for jailed US pastor Andrew Brunson. Gulen has reportedly said that he will willingly return from the US to Turkey if his extradition is approved, but believes Turkey has provided no evidence to suggest his involvement in the attempted coup.
