Protesters target Turkey IMF talks
Police clashed with anti-capitalist protesters in central Istanbul yesterday after using teargas and water cannon to stop them marching to the congress centre hosting the International Monetary Fund and World Bank annual meetings.
Protesters and passers-by took shelter in doorways as riot police and armoured vehicles cleared Taksim square, the city's transport hub. Some wrapped scarves around their face as protection against clouds of teargas.
About 100 people were taken into custody, some for throwing stones and petrol bombs as they tried to break through a police cordon and march towards the conference centre, Turkish media reported.
