Erdogan’s Turkey has no place in the EU, say MEPs

MEPs on Wednesday lashed out at Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdo?an over the violent response to the protests in Istanbul. The demonstration began as a peaceful sit-in against government plans to build a shopping centre in central Istanbul. But it has now evolved into wide anti-government protest that has polarised the country. The EU expressed concern about the use of police force after clashes with the protesters left 5,000 injured and 4 dead.
