Istanbul: Turkish prosecutors on Friday requested an Istanbul court to issue an arrest warrant for the US-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen who has emerged as President Recep Tayyip Erdogan`s number one foe.

The request by prosecutors said Gulen, who has lived in exile since 1999, led a "criminal" group acting against the "rules and laws in media, economy and bureaucracy," the state Anatolia news agency reported.

State television TRT reported earlier that the court had already delivered an arrest warrant for Gulen but later withdrew its report.
