“Turkish riot police in sizable numbers fired tear gas and moved in on protesters who had set up a new barricade Tuesday in Istanbul’s Taksim Square.
Protesters lobbed Molotov cocktails at armored vehicles and burned one. Police responded by spraying water cannons.
In a game of cat-and-mouse, the demonstrators, using wooden boards as shields, would pull back — only to return, lobbing cocktails and firecrackers and flashing “victory” signs.”
“”Most of the crowd is situated in the park,” said Efe Songun, who attended the protests. “They are shouting their slogans.”"
