“Tens of thousands attended the funeral of Berkin Elvan. What went on as a totally peaceful demonstration throughout the day turned violent when the riot police suddenly began attacking the crowds without warning as soon as the funeral service ended.

Protests and police attacks continue as of this moment.” https://www.facebook.com/TurkishProtests
