Riot police, protesters clash outside Ankara court

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Clashes broke out outside an Ankara courthouse on Monday (October 28) during a hearing of a police officer charged with shooting a 26-year-old Turkish man dead in the capital Ankara in early June during Gezi Park-related protests. Several hundred protesters gathered outside the courthouse to denounce the "slow process" and clashes broke out when the demonstrators were not allowed to enter the courthouse. Riot police fired smoke grenades and water cannons to disperse the protesters trying to break the windows of the courthouse to enter the building. Several protesters were wounded during the clashes, private Dogan News Agency reported. Ethem Sarisuluk was shot on June 1 when a police officer opened fire into the air as protesters hurled stones at him. Sarisuluk's family filed a complaint and urged the government to launched an immediate investigation, but the slow process triggered criticism among the protesters.
