|Turkey: clashes between police and protesters after funeral of teenager Berkin Elvan |
Turkish police have used teargas and water cannon during clashes with anti-government protesters in central Istanbul on Wednesday.
Earlier, demonstrators marched through the city for the funeral of a boy wounded during protests last summer.
Berkin Elvan, who was then 14, is believed to have been hit on the head with a police teargas canister while on his way to buy bread last June.
He died nine months after falling into a coma when he was hit by a police tear-gas canister.
