Clashes erupt between police and protesters during May Day celebrations in Istanbul. The government, citing security reasons, banned a rally on Istanbul's Taksim Square, which is undergoing major renovations. Police fired tear gas to disperse hundreds of demonstrators trying to break through barricades to get to the square.
