Turkey's state-run news agency says authorities have captured two more people suspected of being part of a group of soldiers who raided President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's seaside hotel during the failed coup.

Anadolu Agency says the two were captured early Monday near the Aegean resort of Marmaris, bringing the number of suspects caught in the operation that began late Sunday to 11. One suspect is still on the run.

Erdogan had been on vacation during the July 15 coup. The soldiers raided his hotel in an attempt to capture or kill the president but are believed to have missed him by an hour or less.

The government accuses U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gulen of being behind the coup. Gulen denies any knowledge of the attempt to overthrow the government.
