Turkey: students protest against new highway

Hundreds of students clashed with police at Ankara’s Middle East Technical University on Tuesday (February 25) as they protested the government’s plan for building a controversial highway in the Turkish capital.

Anti-government demonstrations have been ongoing at the university for a couple of months as students and residents of the area protested against building the road across the university campus.

The plans allegedly involve uprooting a large number of trees in an area that is one of the largest green spaces in Ankara.
