A retired Turkish general who is suspected of planning a military coup was hospitalized today.
General Cetin Dogan was arrested Sunday and placed in an intensive care unit this morning, the Turkish Sabah newspaper reported.
A Turkish court ordered the arrest of 103 individuals Friday who were reportedly planning a military coup.
Dogan was arrested in the resort town of Bodrum. He was taken by plane to Istanbul.
The first hearing in the case is scheduled for Dec. 16.
An investigation was launched into the alleged plotting of the coup in Istanbul after the Taraf newspaper published a series of controversial articles in January 2010.
The newspaper reported that the Turkish army, which has backed three coups since 1960, had prepared the "Sledgehammer Plan" - a coup involving bombings at two Istanbul mosques.
