Police in Turkey have used water cannon and gas against demonstrators in Istanbul

Turkish police used water cannons and tear gas against demonstrators in Istanbul protesting against the arrest of journalists and opposition Newspapers. About it reports Reuters with reference to its own correspondent from the scene.

Special means were used to prevent demonstrators to break through to the entrance of the building. Another correspondent of the Agency reported finding in the sky not far from the scene of the police helicopters.

The protest started in Istanbul on Saturday, November 5, hours after a warrant was issued for the arrest of the chief editor and eight employees of the opposition newspaper Cumhuriyet. They are accused of supporting Kurdish militants and preacher Fethullah Gulen, who, according to Ankara, organized a coup attempt on 16 July.
