Kosovo Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj has dismissed the interior minister and the secret service chief after the arrest and extradition to Turkey of six Turkish nationals.

The prime minister had said he was not informed about the operation to deport the six, who were arrested in Kosovo on Thursday over links to schools financed by the Fethullah Gulen movement that Ankara blames for a failed 2016 coup.

‘The entire operation – revoking their residence permits, detention, emergency deportation and the secret extradition to Turkey of the six Turkish citizens from Kosovo territory – was conducted without my knowledge and without my permission’, Haradinaj said in a statement. It’s not known when replacements for Interior Minister Flamur Sefaj and secret service chief Driton Gashi would be named./Euronews
