Turkey's Islamist-rooted government faced growing pressure today after angry demonstrators clashed for a third night with police in a nationwide wave of protests.

Police had withdrawn on Saturday from Istanbul's main Taksim Square, the symbolic heart of demonstrations that started over an unpopular building project nearby and boiled over into a general protest against the government.
