Clashes

Police entered the area to clear away illegal banners, not to crack down on protesters, CNN-Turk television reported, citing the office of Istanbul Governor Huseyin Avni Mutlu.

Mutlu said on his Twitter account today that some protesters were creating smoke or fog “to give the impression of excessive use of gas by police.”

Left, a petrol bomb explodes next to a group of police.
