Turkey has entered a second day of violent protests, with fresh clashes between police and demonstrators in Istanbul and the capital, Ankara.

The unrest began as a sit-in over plans to redevelop Gezi Park in Istanbul's Taksim Square, but escalated after police used tear gas.

Tear gas was again fired today at protesters in Istanbul and Ankara.

In a defiant speech, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip insisted that the park project would go ahead.
