Istanbul: Turkish police used water cannon on Saturday to disperse thousands of demonstrators who had gathered anew in defiance of the government in Istanbul`s Taksim Square.
Several thousands of protesters had earlier gathered in the square, the heart of demonstrations against the country`s Islamic-rooted government that shook Turkey for most of June, presenting Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan with the biggest challenge of his decade-long rule.
