, Athens, Greece, Dec 6 – A Greek court on Tuesday ruled that three Turkish military officers should be extradited for their alleged role in a failed coup in neighbouring Turkey in July, a judicial source said.

The court said that the three — out of eight officers seeking asylum in Greece — should be sent back for “attempting to topple the regime,” the source said.
