Just three hours after Istanbul's Gezi Park was officially declared open to the public, access to the park was once again closed by Turkish police on Monday, who used water cannon to disperse protesters.

Taksim Gezi Park, which has become the heart of the anti-government movement sweeping the nation, was briefly opened to public use today before access to the park was blocked again by police officers three hours later.

Live TV footage showed police officers forcing people out of the park, which was closed since a brutal police crackdown on protesters in the park June 15.
