Islamists attacked "kissing protesters" in metro

Dozens of couples have locked lips at a subway stop in Turkey's capital,
Ankara, to protest subway authorities' admonishment of a couple that
kissed in public. Turkish media say that, earlier in the week, Ankara
subway officials made an announcement asking passengers "to act in
accordance with moral rules" after security cameras spotted the couple
kissing.



The issue prompted an opposition lawmaker to question the
Islamist-rooted ruling party, which many secularists fear wants to
expand the role of Islam in Turkey, about whether subway officials were
authorized to make such demands.



Some 100 people in the station kissed for several minutes in protest
Saturday. Demonstrators carried signs reading "Free Kisses" and chanted
slogans.



A pro-Islamist group of some 20 people staged a counter-protest. Police set up barricades between the groups.





1 young protester got stabbed in the butt by an islamist.
