    A night of relative calm descended on Turkey after four days of protests that left two people dead and one in critical condition.

    Police and protesters engaged in a stand-off in Istanbul overnight as the Kesk trade union federation accused the government of "state terror."

    The union has announced a two- day strike. The confederation claimed the government is undermining democracy.
