Turkish police fire water cannon, plastic bullets to disperse anti-government protesters

27th Dec 2013 – Turkish riot police fired water cannon and plastic bullets to break up an anti-government demonstration by hundreds of protesters.

Police blocked hundreds of protesters from gathering in Istanbul’s central Taksim Square and pushed them away to the nearby streets. A high-level bribery and corruption investigation involving close government allies has led to a new outpouring of anger against Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government.
