Hundreds of Turkish riot police moved in on anti-government protestors in Istanbul Tuesday, blasting them with rubber bullets and tear gas.
They forced them out of Taksim Square, where they've been holding out for more than a week.
"To those who ... are at Taksim and elsewhere taking part in the demonstrations with sincere feelings: I call on you to leave those places and to end these incidents and I send you my love. But for those who want to continue with the incidents I say: 'It's over.' As of now we have no tolerance for them," Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.
Police also broke up other protests in Ankara using water cannons and tear gas.
Massive crowds have been protesting nationwide for 12 days against the strong-arm tactics of the Turkish prime minister.
They also accuse Erdogan of trying to turn Turkey into an Islamic state, undermining Turkey's secular traditions and freedoms.
