Turkish police fire teargas to disperse hundreds in Istanbul

ISTANBUL - Turkish police fired teargas in Istanbul on Wednesday to disperse several hundred people protesting against the police crackdown on last month's anti-government demonstrations, local media reported.
Police blocked several hundred protesters in a busy street near Istanbul's Taksim Square from marching in support of a teenage boy who is said to be in a coma after being hit in the head by a teargas canister during the unrest.
TV footage showed police vehicles firing water cannons and protesters running into side streets.
