Protesters have taken to the streets of Istanbul on Tuesday after a death of a demonstrator in the southern city of Antakya.
Turkish police used water cannon and fired rounds of teargas into the busy city centre to disperse the crowd.
At least 40 people have been detained.
An under 21s football match between Turkey and Sweden was temporarily suspended because tear gas wafted into the stadium.
In Antakya, the funeral of 22 year old protester Ahmet Atakan took place. He died at a demonstration against police handling of nationwide anti-government protests this summer.
The authorities have been blamed for his death, however they have denied all responsibility.
Tensions were high in the city on Tuesday with clashes breaking out between demonstrators and police.
Six anti-government protesters have now been killed in Turkey in recent months.
