Turkey Pride march hit with police water cannon

Turkish police have fired water cannon, rubber pellets and tear gas at a gay pride event in Istanbul.

Earlier, organisers had posted a warning on Facebook that the local authority had banned the march because it coincided with the holy month of Ramadan.
