A rain soaked couple dances as a pianist is playing on the landmark Taksim square in central Istanbul on June 14, 2013. Anti-government protesters said on June 13 that they would remain in Istanbul's Gezi Park despite a "last warning" by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to evacuate the green patch at the centre of deadly anti-government unrest. The protest movement sprang up after police on May 31 brutally cracked down on a small campaign to save Gezi Park, sparking a mass outpouring of anger against Erdogan's Islamic-rooted government, seen as increasingly authoritarian. Tens of thousands have since clashed with police in demos across Turkey, leaving some 5,000 people injured and four dead.
