Turkey 'issues arrest warrant for second US consulate worker'

Turkey has issued an arrest warrant for a US consulate worker, the second in a week, media reports say.

The detention of a member of staff in Istanbul last week triggered a diplomatic row, with both sides scaling back visa services.

The first worker was held over alleged links to a cleric blamed for last year’s coup in Turkey, but no reason has been given for the latest warrant.

The row has driven down Turkey’s currency and stocks.
