Turkish police fire tear gas to break up protest

Turkish riot police fired tear gas and water cannon to disperse several hundred people protesting against the government at an Ankara university on Tuesday ahead of the opening of a highway in the city.
"Government resign", "Thief Tayyip Erdogan", the crowd of mainly students chanted on a road within the university campus where they set up a makeshift barricade.
