Police Use Tear Gas And Water Canons Against Protestors Throwing Rocks In Istanbul.

Residents of a shantytown attacked municipality workers and police with stones on Wednesday (9/12) to prevent the demolition of their illegally built houses. Television pictures showed protesters throwing stones at the authorities in Istanbul's Tuzla district. Police fired tear gas canisters to disperse the protesters who ignited a fire truck and a caravan used by construction workers. Water canons were used to extinguish barricades that had been set alight. Other demonstrators blocked traffic on a major highway, burning objects in protest.
