>>> this was the fourth day of anti-government protests in turkey. once again violence broke out as riot police fought with demonstrators near the offices of the prime minister. they are seen largely as a display of frustration with the prime minister trying to have more conservative values in the secular country. it looked like tahrir square in egypt during the arab uprising, a comparison erdogan rejected today.
