Four men, including a policeman, were remanded in custody by a Turkish court on Wednesday over the death of an anti-government protester who was beaten during a June demonstration, local media reported.
The four were placed in detention by a court in the northwestern town of Eskisehir where student Ali Ismail Korkmaz, 19, died of a brain hemorrhage on after spending 38 days in a coma. Turkey was gripped in June by nationwide protests triggered after police cracked down on demonstrators seeking to save an Istanbul park. According to police, some 2.5 million people took part in the demonstrations. (AFP)
