Meanwhile protests continued in Turkey against the ruling party, police brutality, and the destruction of Taksim park in Istanbul for the sake of a development project. Turkey's Islamic-rooted government apologised today to wounded protestors and said it had 'learnt its lesson' after days of mass street demonstrations that have posed the biggest challenge to Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's decade in office. What started as an outcry against a local development project has snowballed into widespread anger against what critics say is the government's increasingly conservative and authoritarian agenda.
