Erdogan gives protesters 24-hour to clear Gezi Park

Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan issued a final warning to protesters occupying a park in central Istanbul on Thursday, saying patience had run out and calling on them to leave, Reuters reports.

“Our patience is at an end. I am making my warning for the last time. I say to the mothers and fathers please take your children in hand and bring them out… We cannot wait any more because Gezi Park does not belong to occupying forces but to the people,” Erdogan told an AK Party meeting in Ankara.
