Protesters Clash With Police in Turkey’s Ankara
Police have used tear gas and water cannon to disperse thousands of protesters in Turkey’s capital Ankara in continuing anti-government demonstrations.
About 5,000 people had gathered in Kizilay Square in the city centre, the BBC informs.
Protesters and police also clashed in Istanbul, Turkey's largest city.
Turkey has seen more than a week of demonstrations and civil unrest across the country, sparked by a police crackdown on a local protest over an Istanbul park.
On Saturday, Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan called a meeting of his senior party functionaries amid the massive protests.
Erdogan’s ruling AKP party declared that it does not support the idea of calling early general elections.
