Arrests, rubber bullets & tear gas: Police break up LGBT march in Istanbul

Several demonstrators have been detained as the Turkish police disperse an LGBT march in Istanbul’s Taksim Square that was banned earlier by the regional authorities. Police fired rubber bullets and teargas.

Police set up checkpoints in the area surrounding the square ahead of the march and blocked the nearby streets in an attempt to prevent it from taking place, AP reports. The police officers also barred people from entering Istiklal Avenue and turned back all those thought to be linked to the banned event.
