Police take on protesters as Erdogan seeks calm

Published: 06.15.13, 11:17 / Israel News

Police firing water cannons and tear gas have dispersed protesters who erected street barricades near Turkey's parliament overnight.


It was the latest face-off between authorities and demonstrators over the government's response to a protest sit-in that began more than two weeks ago at a coveted Istanbul park. The pre-dawn melee Saturday in Ankara came hours after Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's government asked a small delegation of protesters to persuade the hundreds of others occupying Gezi Park to leave.
