Istanbul riot police break up LGBT rally

Turkish police fired rubber bullets and tear gas to break up a rally by the LGBT community in Istanbul on Sunday, in the second crackdown in as many days on protests by secular Turks. Several hundred riot police surrounded the main Taksim Square — where demonstrations have been banned since major anti-government protests in 2013 — to prevent the “Trans Pride” event taking place during Ramadan. It was the latest crackdown by police in Turkey against an event during the Muslim holy month.
