Turkey: Thousands Join Protests In Istanbul

Thousands of protesters joined the ongoing anti-government protests in Istanbul's Taksim Square on June 8, Al Jazeera reported. The protesters brought food and blankets in preparation for a weekend of demonstrations. A new round of protests are set for June 9 in Ankara, while Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is in the city. June 7 marked a full week since the beginning of violent clashes in Turkey between the police and anti-government protesters of various political stripes.

Editor's Note: A previous version of this situation report misstated Prime Minister Erdgoan's title.
