Protests across Turkey

Fresh protests have erupted in Turkey after a teenager died this week.

 

The boy, 15, was hit in the head by a tear gas canister during anti-government protests in Istanbul over the summer. He’d been kept in a medically-induced coma since then, and protesters flooded Istanbul once again after he died in a local hospital.

 

Turkey will hold national elections, widely seen as a referendum on the country’s prime minister, in three weeks.
