A protestor is hit by water sprayed from a water cannon during clashes in Taksim Square, Istanbul, Turkey, 11 June 2013. Police used water cannons and tear gas as they moved into Istanbul's Taksim Square, where two weeks of protests have been held, as some demonstrators threw rocks and Molotov cocktails. Authorities used construction machinery to clear barricades erected by the protesters around the central square as police entered it for the first time since 01 June after a crackdown on the demonstrations drew international condemnation.
