Clouds of tear gas billowed through the air of Ankara as police and anti-government protesters clashed in the Turkish capital on Saturday. This is the latest in a string of protests to hit Turkey following twin bomb blasts in the city of Reyhanli near the border with Syria.

Afghans once again take to the streets of the capital Kabul to show their anger at the presence of U-S forces in their country. The protesters demand the withdrawal of all U-S forces-- especially those stationed in the eastern province of Wardak. Afghans say the American forces have killed, tortured, and detained local villagers there.
President Karzai also wants US forces out of the province. He blamed US forces for killing and torturing local villagers in Maidan Wardak. So he quickly called on them to leave Maidan Wardak within two weeks.
But it not the first that Afghans have been showing their outrage over the US military involvement here. Anti-US sentiments are growing here. This country has been the scene of anti-US rallies since this war began. People take to the streets especially when civilians are killed at the hands of US-led troops.
