ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday that there could be more changes in government after the resignation of the interior minister this week, but said he had not been informed of any specific moves by Prime Minister Binali Yildirim.

Efkan Ala resigned as interior minister on Wednesday following a string of bombings that prompted public criticism and concerns about intelligence failures before a July failed coup.

"Maybe, as time passes, you could see other similar changes in other ministries, but I have not heard it from the prime minister. Our government is continuing its path decisively," Erdogan told a news conference.
