ANKARA (Turkey), 18 JUNE: Turkish news reports say police are carrying out raids and detaining people suspected of involvement in violence against police during a wave of anti-government protests. NTV television says the raids in Ankara and Istanbul are targeting left-wing groups. Turkey’s state-run Anadolu Agency said at least 25 people were detained in Ankara and many others in Istanbul. Earlier, police detained a dozen people who stood still at Istanbul’s Taksim Square in a form of passive defiance against Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s authority after activists were ousted from a sit-in at a park over the weekend. ap
