ATHENS (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on Thursday demanded the extradition of suspected coup plotters from Greece, referring to eight soldiers who flew to northern Greece during the failed putsch last year.

Speaking in Athens during a joint news conference with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, Erdogan also called for an improvement in the ethnic status of Turks living in Greece.
