The violence erupted on Tuesday after funeral ceremonies for 14 guerrillas of the banned Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), killed by security forces in a military operation last weekend.

Is the cop shooting from his shotgun? I heard some guys died in that riot.

Yeah, that's what it looks like. The press caption said they were shooting "tear gas", but I've never seen tear gas being shot from a shotgun!

3 people were killed in the riots.
