On Thursday, Turkish police attempted to break up about 2,000 anti-government protestors in Ankara. In the middle the crackdown, police blasted Husna Sari, a reporter from Ulusal TV, with a water cannon.
"We are here to request the liberation of all the patriots," Emine Altin, a protester, told AFP, while waving a Turkish flag. "Turkey is under the yoke of repression" by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Altin added. "Now, it's a matter of life or death."
