There are reports of serious unrest in Turkey after police used baton charges, tear gas and water cannisters to clear protestors from Taksim Square in central Istanbul. The protests had entered their fourth day as the demonstrators were angry about plans to develop parts of Taksim Square. The police moved in and arrested dozens. What started out as an environmental protest has changed into that of a political tone. There are reports tonight that the protests have spread to the capital, Ankara and Izmir. There is widespread anger and discontent at Erdogan's government. Many different groups have joined the demonstrations. Could Turkey see its own version of the Arab Spring which has been engulfing its Mid East neighbours for over two years. Or is Turkey on the verge of a revolution?
