On May Day, Turkish police clashed with protesters who were banned from gathering in Taksim Square in the centre of Istanbul, but tried to get there anyway.
Tear gas, water cannon and rubber pellets were met with petrol bombs, stones and fireworks as people repeatedly tried to breach police lines blocking the way to Taksim
There was also trouble in Kizilay Square in the capital, Ankara. Water cannon and tear gas was used there to disperse more than 1,000 demonstrators.
