Clashes in Turkey after 15-year old boy died in coma
12 March, 2014
The streets of Istanbul have seen clashes between police and people enraged by the death of a boy who was struck on the head by a tear gas canister fired by police in June 2013 , BBC informs.
Berkin Elvan, 15, was wounded while on his way to buy bread and had been in a coma ever since.
His death was the eighth linked to last year's mass anti-government protests, which began in Gezi Park, Istanbul, and then spread across Turkey.
BBC’s Selin Girit reports from Istanbul.
