Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan removed his health minister and urbanisation minister, the country's Official Gazette showed on Tuesday.

Health Minister Fahrettin Koca had asked to be removed from his post and Erdogan appointed Kemal Memisoglu in his place, the Official Gazette said.

It added Murat Kurum was appointed as Turkey's environment, urbanisation and climate change minister, after incumbent Mehmet Ozhaseki said late on Monday he had asked to resign due to health issues.
