Turkish riot police used tear gas and pressurised water early on Friday to quash a demonstration by hundreds of people protesting against the demolition of trees in an Istanbul park for the building of a new shopping centre.

Police forces attacked Taksim Gezi Park protesters at dawn with tear gas and violence for a second consecutive day this morning in a new attempt to disperse crowds protesting the planned construction of a new mall.

According to the Istanbul Chamber of Medicine, seven people have been seriously injured. Six people are suffering from serious head traumas and a teacher’s leg has been broken.
