    Anti-government protesters expressed their anger late into the night after Turkey's premier said he would only meet the original campaigners who had been trying to save a city park from redevelopment.

    Throwing Molotov cocktails and setting barricades ablaze the demonstrators have changed the park protest into a wider show of defiance against the prime minister and the ruling AK party.
