Baton-wielding police broke up a crowd of around a thousand fellow activists who had turned up for the wedding of Nuray Cokol, a 32-year-old nurse, and Ozgur Kaya, a 34-year-old electrician, in Gezi Park. Nuray and Ozgur fell in love behind the barricades of last month's mass anti-government protests in Istanbul and picked the epicentre of the revolt on Taksim Square as the venue to tie the knot on July 20.
