Turkey Protests Grow Violent

Angry protesters are reported to have gathered at Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's offices in Istanbul and Ankara, calling on him to resign.

"Dictator, resign!... We will resist until we win," yelled the crowds, in the latest of a string of protests that have by some accounts left hundreds injured.

Turkey's Islamist-rooted government is presently facing  growing pressure after angry demonstrators clashed for a third night with police in a nationwide wave of protests.

Accused by critics of pushing an increasingly conservative and authoritarian agenda, Erdogan's government is facing the biggest protests since it took power in 2002.
