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.

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