Protester holds a sign as he stands behind a portrait of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk in Ankara
A protester holds a sign as he stands behind a portrait of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, founder of secular and modern Turkey, during a rally to support the ban on headscarves and to protest against the government in Ankara February 9, 2008. Turkey's parliament resoundingly approved on Saturday controversial constitutional changes aimed at lifting a ban on female students wearing the Muslim headscarf in universities, the assembly's speaker said. At the anti-headscarf rally, the second in Ankara in a week, feelings were running high as protesters sang patriotic songs and waved pictures of Kemal Ataturk, revered founder of the modern secular Turkish republic. The words on the sign read: "We don't want AKP (Turkey's ruling Ak Party)." REUTERS/Umit Bektas (TURKEY)
