Protests continue in Turkey

About 3,000 protesters in Istanbul attempted to march through Taksim Square to Gezi Park. Police used tear gas and water cannon to disperse the crowd. For several weeks, this area has been the site of ongoing large protests and demonstrations.

Travellers should avoid any public gathering or demonstration as these situations have turned violent very quickly.
