Protests in Turkey - level 2
The worst anti-government demonstrations are making problems in Turkey.
The government there wanted to rebuild a park in Istanbul but people didn't like it so they started to protest. More people joined and then things got worse. Later, the people didn't care about the park very much, they protested against the government. Many things were destroyed and burnt. The demonstrations are not just in Istanbul but in Ankara too.
Police used water cannons and tear gas. 1000 people were injured. The European Union and people in Europe say that the government is using too much force.
Interesting words: rebuild (build again), burnt (destroyed by fire).
