In the heart of Taksim - 06 June 2013
Turkish police clashed with demonstrators overnight ahead of the return of Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan to a nation rattled by a week of protest against his leadership. Erdogan returns from a visit to North Africa to face demands he apologise over a fierce police crackdown and sack those who ordered it, following six days of protests that have left two dead and more than 4,000 injured in a dozen cities.

The government has made clear its disapproval of social media services, which are being used more and more as newspapers and television come increasingly under the sway of the state. In a television interview last week, Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan described sites such as Twitter as a "scourge", saying they were used to spread lies about the government with the aim of terrorising society.

Protesters clashed with police across Turkey overnight despite an apology for police violence from the deputy prime minister designed to halt an unprecedented wave of protest against Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan. Pro-government newspapers signalled a softening of Ankara's line in the absence of Erdogan, who flew off on a state visit to north Africa on Monday night after a weekend of rioting critics said were inflamed by his denunciations of protesters.

Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan accused anti-government protesters on Monday of walking "arm-in-arm with terrorism", remarks that could further inflame public anger after three days of some of the most violent riots in decades. Hundreds of police and protesters have been injured since Friday in the riots, which began with a demonstration to halt construction in a park in an Istanbul square and grew into mass protests against what opponents call Erdogan's authoritarianism.

Days of anti-government protest in Turkey have achieved one feat that has eluded the authorities for years: uniting the fiercely rival and sometimes violent supporters of Istanbul's "Big Three" football clubs. Besiktas, Galatasaray and Fenerbahce fans have come together in new-found solidarity during five days of demonstrations against Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan's government.
