 Turkish police use tear gas against anti-US protest in Ankara

Turkey's police tried to disperse protesters with tear gas during the anti-US demonstration held amid US State Secretary Rex Tillerson's visit to Ankara, the head of the youth department of the Turkish opposition party Vatan, Aykut Dis, said.

The head of the party which organized the protest said that about 150 people took part in the rally. He noted that there were no permission to hold a rally received from the government, Sputnik reported.

Dis stressed that though the police used tear gas, "they themselves said that it was not their desire, but they were forced to do it."

According to Dis, Washington is behind all the threats that Turkey faces in politics, economy and in the international arena. "We protest against this imperialist oppression," he added.
