ANKARA - Turkish police fired tear gas and water cannon to disperse a crowd of several thousand demonstrators in Ankara's central Kizilay square on Wednesday in a protest triggered by the death of a teenager wounded in street clashes last summer.

Tens of thousands of mourners, many chanting anti-government slogans, were meanwhile marching in central Istanbul at the funeral of the 15-year-old boy, Berkin Elvan, who died on Tuesday after spending nine months in a coma.
