TURKEY: Tear gas, over 100 arrested as protesters mark 1 year after Gezi Park (PHOTOS)



Turkish police have shot tear gas at protesters, along with an RT journalist covering the event. More than 100 have been detained on the anniversary of the 2013 Gezi Park demonstrations and 25,000 officers have been dispatched to quash the protest.

Several hundred people had been assembling on streets leading to Taksim Square when police fired tear gas into the crowd, which promptly dispersed.
In total, around 120 have been arrested Istanbul Police Chief Selami Altinok said late Saturday, Anadolu new agency reported. He added that four police were wounded.
