ANKARA, Turkey (AP) —

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has reshuffled his Cabinet after three key ministers resigned over a corruption scandal that had ensnared their sons and other government allies.

Erdogan on Wednesday replaced the economy, interior and environment ministers who stepped down on Wednesday. All three men's sons were detained as part of a massive bribery and corruption probe targeting Erdogan's allies.

Erdogan also replaced the minister in charge of relations with the European Union, who was also been implicated in the scandal, but has not resigned.

In all, Erdogan replaced 10 ministers, including three who will contest mayoral elections in March.
