    While there is "anecdotal and circumstantial" evidence that individual members of the Gulen movement were involved in a failed coup attempt in Turkey last year, hard proof was difficult to find, according to a UK parliamentary report.

    Since the July 15 coup attempt, Turkey has accused Pennsylvania-based Fethullah Gulen of being behind a push to overthrow President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

    The inquiry by the Foreign Affairs Committee also points out opportunities in the UK's growing relationship with Turkey.
