Turkish authorities ordered the arrest of 61 soldiers from the navy and land forces, including senior officers, for suspected links to a U.S.-based cleric who Ankara says orchestrated a 2016 failed coup, state media said on Monday. Eighteen of those ordered detained were on active duty, Anadolu news agency said, adding the suspects included 13 majors and 12 captains from the land forces and 24 first lieutenants from the navy. Authorities have carried out regular sweeps against alleged members of cleric Fethullah Gulen's network since the coup attempt of July 2016, in which 250 people were killed.
New Zealand’s so-called “First Baby” - the three-month-old daughter of prime minister Jacinda Ardern - has made her debut on the international political stage, appearing at a peace summit at the United Nations with her mother. Ms Ardern kissed Neve Te Aroha before addressing the summit, during which the baby was held by Clarke Gayford, Ms Ardern’s partner. Mr Gayford sent an image of his daughter’s United Nations security pass, which playfully listed her title as “First Baby”. "Because everyone on Twitter's been asking to see Neve's UN ID, staff here whipped one up," he wrote. "I wish I could have captured the startled look on a Japanese delegation inside the UN yesterday who walked into a meeting room in the middle of a nappy change. Great yarn for her 21st."

She is only the second leader in modern history to give birth while in office, after Pakistan's Benazir Bhutto in 1990. Ms Ardern said she and her partner made “a very practical decision” to take Neve with them into the United Nations summit in New York. “Neve is actually nearby me most of the time in New Zealand, she's just not always caught,” she said.

CLARY/AFP Ms Ardern has been feted by the United States media during her visit and appeared on NBC’s Today Show shortly after her arrival. She joked that taking her daughter on a seventeen-hour flight “at the time felt on par” with running the country. "But between Clarke and I we managed it," she said. "You don't know until you are there of course, but [motherhood] has met my expectations, the joy though has far surpassed my expectations."
