A group of activists gathered opposite the building, carrying banners and shouting slogans in support of the Turkish anti-government protesters.

The demonstrations in several Turkish towns started as peaceful rallies in Istanbul last week, but turned into clashes and riots after a police crackdown.

The protests then grew into mass anti-government rallies in Istanbul, Ankara, and more than a dozen other towns.

The United Nations on Tuesday advised Turkey to carry out an investigation into the allegations of excessive use of force by the police.

It remains unclear how many people lost their lives during the riots so far.
