  • Description

    Istanbul had its biggest demonstrations in recent years on Saturday (25 January) at the start of the funeral precession of a student shot dead on Thursday in a clash between left and right-wing students.

    An estimated 80,000 people -- mostly students and trade unionists -- filed through the streets of Istanbul behind the coffin of 22-year-old Kerim Yaman from Istanbul university to a ferry-boat station. The body was shipped to his home at Manisa, near Izmir.

    Yaman was killed during a clash at an engineering and technical college. Eight others were seriously injured.

    Leftists later snatched his body from the city morgue and displayed it on a makeshift bier after occupying the main building of Istanbul University.
