      Police Use Tear Gas Against Istanbul Protesters

      Several demonstrators in the Turkish city of Istanbul were injured on Wednesday night from tear gas used against them by police, a local channel reported. The protesters nevertheless refused to leave the area.

      The demonstrations in Istanbul resumed earlier in the evening, demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan amid a corruption scandal in the country.
