Anti-government protesters in Turkey are defiant despite the police sweeping through a camp in Istanbul. They're vowing to keep up the pressure on Prime Minister Erdogan, who has largely dismisssed their demands.
Turkey has summoned the US ambassador to protest the detention of two security officers during the Turkish president's Washington visit last week. The officers were briefly detained after clashing with protesters.
The Turkish President's bodyguards violently attacked a group of pro-Kurdish demonstrators after a meeting with Donald Trump. The city of Washington, the US State Department and police all condemned the attack.
Demonstrators had attempted to defy a government ban on holding events in the symbolic square. The confrontation occurred shortly after a new round of internationally-criticized sackings among the Turkish civil service.
Turkish authorities have formally arrested two journalists from the opposition Sozcu newspaper, accusing them of supporting Fethullah Gulen. Officials recently arrested a Cumhuriyet editor on terrorism charges.
