Turkish forces clear Istanbul park

This Just In

Turkish riot police used water cannons and tear gas Saturday to clear protesters camped out in an Istanbul park that has become ground zero in anti-government demonstrations targeting the policies of Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan.
At least 29 people were injured in clashes as police took Taksim Square and adjacent Gezi Park, Istanbul Gov. Huseyin Avni Mutlu said in remarks carried on Turkish television stations.
Police pushed protesters onto side streets, where many — with their faces covered with masks because of tear gas and smoke — refused to leave and appeared to be reorganizing.
The move came shortly after police warned demonstrators who have occupied Istanbul’s last remaining green space for more than two weeks to depart voluntarily or face being ejected.

President  Vladmir Putin’s spokesman denied accusations that the president pocketed a Super Bowl ring that belonged to the New England Patriots’ owner, Robert Kraft.

“I took out the ring and showed it to (Putin). And he put it on and he goes, ‘I can kill someone with this ring,'” Kraft said, according to Bleacher Report. “I put my hand out and he put it in his pocket, and three KGB guys got around him and walked out.”

WATCH: Footage of The Elusive Deep Sea Oarfish


When you live 1,600 feet below sea level, you expect a certain degree of privacy. That’s why little is known about the ethereal oarfish, a serpent-like deep sea creature that can grow to as long as 56 ft. in length.

The oarfish — really a family of several species — is the Guinness Book of World Records holder as the longest bony fish in the world, a group that includes almost all fish except sharks and rays. While the fish spend most of their lives in deep water, they can float to the surface when dying. Specimens found there have sparked the imagination of fishermen and might be the real-life basis of the Loch Ness Monster.
