A 22-year-old protester died in southern Turkey on Tuesday during an anti-government demonstration connected to the Gezi Park movement that was launched in May. Ahmet Atakan was hit in the head by a tear gas canister, witnesses said.

A 22-year-old protester in the southern province of Hatay has died in continuing protests tied to the Gezi Park demonstrations, reportedly after being struck in the head by a tear gas canister fired by police.

Ahmet Atakan passed away at around 2 a.m. on Sept. 10 in Antakya’s flashpoint neighborhood of Armutlu after taking part in a march that was called to show solidarity with students and locals in Ankara resisting against the construction of a road through Middle Eastern Technical University (ODTÜ), as well as to commemorate Abdullah Cömert, another Armutlu local that was killed by police in early June at the beginning of the Gezi protests.
