Turkey: officers disperse anti-police brutality protest

ISTANBUL (AP) — Police in Istanbul have dispersed a small group of demonstrators who gathered in the Turkish city to denounce police violence and to stand in solidarity with protesters in the United States. At least 29 demonstrators were detained. The state-run Anadolu Agency said police broke up the demonstration in Istanbul’s Kadikoy district late Tuesday after the group of about 50 activists ignored calls to disperse. Some of the anti-police violence activists were seen carrying a poster of George Floyd, the African-American who died last week after a police officer pressed his knee onto his neck.
