A diplomatic dispute is escalating between the United States and Turkey.

Ankara says it won't process any visitor visas for US citizens.

That's after Washington suspended non-immigrant visa services at its missions in Turkey.

This comes after a US consulate official in Turkey was arrested for alleged links to Fethullah Gulen, a US-based Turkish exiled cleric, whom Ankara accuses of plotting a coup last year.

Al Jazeera's Diane Eastabrook reports from Washington, DC.
