The Turkish police fired teargas and water cannons for a second day on Saturday to prevent hundreds of protesters reaching Istanbul’s central Taksim Square, scene of violent protests in which hundreds were injured on Friday.
Anti-government demonstrators wearing handkerchiefs and surgical masks chanted “unite against fascism” and “government resign” as they tried to march to Taksim. Protesters also clashed with police in the Besiktas neighborhood after crossing a bridge in another apparent attempt to reach the square.
