• A musician plays piano under the monument of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, founder of the modern Turkey, as protesters gather to listen to his concert and police guard the area at the Taksim Square in Istanbul late Thursday, June 13, 2013.

    The talks between Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erogan and the protesters were an effort to resolve a sit-in at Taksim Square's Gezi Park without resorting to a police intervention to clear out the demonstrators.
