Two million Turks protested in memory of 15 year old teenager

Two million Turks protested in memory of 15 year old teenager  
 
Two million Turks protested on Wednesday, in the memory of the 15 years old Berkin Elvan, who was victim of the police repression of the anti-government demonstrations last summer.
The teenager, who was in coma for 268 days after he got injured from police's tear gas, passed away three days ago. In his memory, Turks from all over the country gathered in 53 Turkish cities to protest for his death.

The rallies, which took place both in Konstantinoupoli and Agkyra caused conflicts between protesters and police forces. 70 people injured, including 19 policemen, reports Hürriyet Daily News.
Turkish police arrested 417 protesters.
