Turkish police have used tear gas and water cannon to disperse demonstrators in Ankara on Saturday night. 

On the thirteenth day of anti-government demonstrations that have swept across scores of Turkish cities, police intervened to protesters who had gathered in the downtown Kizilay Square on last night.

GAZİ PROTESTS

There were similar scenes overnight in Istanbul's working-class Gazi neighbourhood, which saw heavy clashes with police in the 1990s. 

The Gezi Park protests which started in reaction to a construction project in Taksim's Gezi Park in Istanbul turned into nation-wide demonstrations against the government. Three person was killed, dozens more were wounded during clashes with police, while hundreds were arrested.
