#Turkish Police Fire Tear Das, Detain 12 Protesters
Local Editor

Turkish police detained at least 12 people and fired tear gas to disperse hundreds more protesting outside Ankara University against the dismissal of dozens of professors, police sources and Reuters witnesses said.

Up to 1,000 people including academics had tried to gather at the campus Friday, some inside and others on surrounding streets, but police blocked the entrance, firing tear gas and rubber bullets.

Dozens of academics at the university were sacked this week, among more than 4,400 largely civil servants dismissed in the latest purge of a nationwide crackdown following a failed coup last July.
