Rubber Bullets

As police entered the square, some of the dozens of protesters gathered there attacked the armored cars with stones and firecrackers. A barricade was set on fire, and a firebomb hit the top of an armored car, drawing blasts from water cannons. Hundreds watched the violence from Gezi Park overlooking the area.
