    It has emerged that a Turkish court ruled against a controversial construction project to redevelop Taksim Square and Gezi Park in Istanbul.

    The court reached its decision on June 8.

    It is unclear why the court's wishes have only just been released.

    The project sparked nationwide outrage and led to widespread anti-government protests across Turkey in late May and June.
