LGBT Pride March Violently Dispersed By Police In Turkey


Al Jazeera reports...

Turkish police have fired rubber bullets and tear gas to break up a banned rally by the LGBT community in central Istanbul.

Several hundred riot police surrounded the main Taksim Square on Sunday to prevent the event called "Trans Pride" from taking place. The rally was to kick off the LGBT - Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender - week in Turkey.

Istanbul's governor had banned the LGBT from holding rallies this week, citing security concerns.
