Video: Police water cannons disperse Turkish opposition supporters at election recount


Turkey’s main opposition party challenged local election results in Ankara after the AKP party declared victory. The Republican People’s Party (CHP) filed their objection after the AKP mayoral candidate for Ankara, Melih Gökçek, held a press conference to announce his victory on March 31. A large group gathered at the Supreme Election Board (YSK) in Ankara on April 1 as a recount was underway, before being dispersed by police water cannons. Credit: Sara Firth
