Riot police used tear gas to disperse demonstrators as they tried to march to the Turkish Parliament during a protest against the ruling Ak Party in Ankara on Wednesday. The protest came after Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan accused political enemies of faking a recording of a phone conversation suggesting he had warned his son to hide large sums of money amid an ongoing corruption operation.
