Police, protesters clash in Turkey border town

Clashes broke out between anti-government protesters and riot police in the Turkish border town of Reyhanli on Saturday. Hundreds of protesters gathered in the streets after twin car bomb attacks killed dozens and wounded many more here a week ago. They say the government didn't do enough to prevent the attacks or provide security at the border with Syria. The demonstration began peacefully but descended into confrontation and clashes after riot police blocked the road. Reyhanli has seen an influx of thousands of Syrians fleeing the conflict in their country. Cross-border shelling from Syria into Turkey and the Syrian shooting down of a Turkish warplane has also increased friction between Ankara and Damascus. Ankara has blamed Syrian intelligence for orchestrating the bombings - a claim Syria denies.
