Police in Turkey have clashed with demonstrators protesting against a counter-terror operation that targeted the offices of a magazine.

Turkish police on Wednesday evening used tear gas and water cannon to disperse protesters who had gathered in the Sultangazi district of Istanbul to show their disapproval of the operation that targeted the Yuruyus magazine building.

Security forces had earlier raided a number of buildings, including that of the magazine, as part of the anti-terror operation. Local media said that some gunshots were heard during the operation.
