    Background: Turkish police and troops moved in to quell violent clashes between communist and right-wing students in Istanbul on Monday (25 November).

    The trouble started when a group of Communist students occupied part of the Istanbul University. "Commando" groups from the neo-Nazi Nationalist Action Party then tried to invade the University grounds and force the Communists out.

    Hundreds of troops, using armoured cars and water cannon, were sent to the University to disperse the rival factions. There were no mojor injuries and the Communists left the occupied buildings by the back door.

    The Nationalist Action Party has been severely critical of former Premier Bulent Ecevit's amnesty of Communists, describing them as"enemies of the state".

    The spate of student clashes - some of the most violent in Turkey for more than two years - began in Ankara, the capital, about 3 weeks ago, shortly after Mr. Ecevit resigned as Premier.
