Adding to the tens of thousands of civil servants who have been suspended in the wake of last month's failed coup, Turkey's Football Federation announced Tuesday it was cutting 94 referees and other officials.

The brief statement from the federation gave no additional details or explanation.

Turkey says it is targeting followers of US-based Islamic cleric Fethullah Gulen, who it blames for the coup attempt.
