    The RT broadcaster published on Friday materials proving the fact that US-based dissident Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen is still in the United States, despite media reports suggesting he could have left for another country.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier this week, Turkish Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag suggested that Gulen could have left the United States for some other country, including Canada, Egypt, Australia or Mexico.

    RT's reporter Caleb Maupin managed to visit Gulen's house in the US state of Pennsylvania and make a photo and filmed a footage with him.

    On July 15, the coup attempt took place in Turkey. It was suppressed the following day. Over 240 people were killed and more than 2,000 injured during the failed coup excluding the victims among the plotters, according to the country's authorities.

    Turkish officials have accused Gulen, who has lived in Pennsylvania since 1999, of orchestrating the failed military coup and are demanding his extradition by the United States.
