Turkish Prosecutors Drop Case Against 60 in Corruption Probe

Turkish prosecutors on Friday dropped a case against 60 people, including the son of a former minister, in a corruption probe that has rocked the Islamic-rooted government, local media said, according to AFP.

An Istanbul prosecutor handling the probe into graft in Turkey's housing agency TOKI decided not to take the suspects to court, citing "lack of evidence" for his decision, the report said.
