Istanbul - Two Turks were killed yesterday in a clash with police in May Day rallies. The clash broke out when police tried to search people gathering for a demonstration organised by unions in Istanbul's Kadikoy district.

"They were not demonstrators. They were the members of illegal leftist organisations, and their purpose was to cause such an incident. Police fired into the air." an official from the Istanbul Security Directorate said. Reuter
