ISTANBUL: Tens of thousands of people were expected to turn out on Wednesday for the funeral of a teenage boy whose death from injuries suffered during last year’s anti-government protests sparked violent countrywide demonstrations. Police fired tear gas and water cannon at stone-hurling protesters outside the Istanbul hospital where 15-year-old Berkin Elvan died on Tuesday after 269 days in a coma.
