Turkey protest: Crowds chant 'Berkin Elvan was only 15'

Thousands of people have gathered in Istanbul for the funeral of a 15-year-old boy who died nine months after being injured during Turkish anti-government protests.

Berkin Elvan's death on Tuesday led to protests in cities across the country.

The boy was injured while walking to buy bread in Istanbul in June - he was hit on the head by a tear gas canister.
