Merkel says shocked by harsh Turkey protest crackdown

Published: 06.17.13, 14:41 / Israel News

Germany's chancellor is criticizing the Turkish security forces' crackdown against street protests as "much too strong."


Angela Merkel told German broadcaster RTL Monday she was "appalled" to see footage from the past weekend when police forces moved in to clear Istanbul's Gezi park that had become a center of the protests. She said that "what is happening at the moment in Turkey does not correspond to our idea of the freedom to protest and the freedom of speech." (AP)
