Police in Turkey disperse protest over Internet curbs

Published: 02.08.14, 22:54 / Israel News

Turkish riot police Saturday used tear gas and water cannon to disperse more than 2,000 people demonstrating against new Internet curbs that have sparked alarm at home and abroad.


Large numbers of police with body armor and shields backed up by armored water cannon trucks were deployed against the chanting, mostly young crowd around Istanbul's central Taksim Square.


"They want to control what we do on the Internet. It's repression. But the young will not be repressed, we won't take it lying down," one demonstrator, Semih, complained. (AFP)
