A protester pulls back the cord on a slingshot in Taksim square in Istanbul on June 11, 2013. Riot police re-entered Istanbul's protest square today, firing tear gas and rubber bullets at firework-hurling demonstrators in a fresh escalation of unrest after Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he would meet with protest leaders. Hundreds of police officers backed by armoured cars moved in on the square in the early morning, saying they wanted to remove makeshift barricades erected by protesters and clear the area of flags and banners.
