Turkey unrest: Mass rally for Erdogan amid new clashes

Help

Turkey's prime minister has rallied tens of thousands of supporters in Istanbul, telling them it was his duty to clear a city square that has been the focus of anti-government unrest.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan denied he was a dictator, criticised foreign media and vowed to "identify one by one those who have terrorised the streets".

Unrest has continued in Ankara and Istanbul, with police firing tear gas.

Two trade union groups have called a one-day nationwide strike for Monday.

James Reynolds reports from Istanbul.
