Turkey: Water cannon blasts protesters in Ankara

Riot police in Turkey have fired water cannon at demonstrators on the streets of the capital Ankara.

The people were calling for a recount of some of the results in Sunday's local elections.

The governing AK party of Prime Minister Recep Tayip Erdogan increased its share of the vote despite months of protests and allegations of government corruption.
