Turkish protesters poured back onto the streets in defiance of their government's plea to end days of deadly unrest, the biggest challenge yet to Prime Minister Recep Tayyip decade-long rule.

 

Erdogan's government won praise from the United States for apologising to protesters injured in the violence but the move did not appear to stem popular anger.

 

Protesters accuse Erdogan of imposing conservative Islamic reforms on the predominantly Muslim but constitutionally secular nation.
