STORYLINE: Turkish police used tear gas in the early hours of Monday morning to disperse protesters who had gathered in the centre of the capital, Ankara. The protesters were angry at the death of a fellow demonstrator, Ethem Sarisuluk, who was buried on Sunday. Sarisuluk was believed to have been hit in the head by a tear-gas canister on June 1 during protests in Ankara. Sarisuluk's family have blamed the police for the killing. A police crackdown in Istanbul on Saturday evening ended an 18-day peaceful sit-in at Gezi Park, sparking daylong unrest on the streets of Istanbul and Ankara. The protests began more than two weeks ago and have spread to dozens of cities across the country. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has blamed them on a nebulous plot to destabilise his government. Five people, including a policeman, have died and more than 5,000 have been injured, according to a Turkish rights group. Critics have accused him of an increasingly autocratic way of governing.(****END****)
