The European Parliament on Thursday urged the Turkish government not to use harsh measures against peaceful protesters and appealed to Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to take a conciliatory stance.


Turkey has been rocked for the past two weeks by anti-government demonstrations centered on Istanbul's Taksim Square. Police have frequently used tear gas and water cannon to break up protests. Three people - one a policeman - have been killed and about 5,000 injured. (Reuters)
