ANKARA — Turkish television said a small group of leftist students protesting against Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan clashed with police at an Ankara university Wednesday.

HaberTurk television said police used tear gas and then rounded up the stone-throwing protesters at the Middle East Technical University, where Erdogan was attending a science and technology meeting on Wednesday.

It was the latest in a series of protests against the government's alleged interference with the appointment of university deans and over alleged use of excessive force by police during student protests.

Erdogan recently criticized students of another Ankara university for throwing eggs at a member of his Islamic-rooted party.
