Thousands protest at Istanbul funeral

Protesters march to honour Ugur Kurt who was killed in crossfire between police and demonstrators on Thursday.

    Fighting has continued overnight in Istanbul, after two men were killed when police tried to stop protests.

    The government has accused the demonstrators of provocation and the city's top official has called for calm.
