    Clashes between police and anti-government protestors in Turkey have continued to escalate well into Saturday in some of the fiercest protests for years.

    A sit-down protest on Friday over plans to build on Gezi Park, one of Ankara's green spaces, into a shopping centre was met with tear gas by the police.
