Turkish police arrest anti-government protesters in Ankara. The demonstrators were blocking roads in the capital on Thursday. At the same time Turkey's Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan was meeting representatives of the protesters. He's hoping to end a two-week-long anti-government backlash that started with a police crackdown on demonstrators opposed to the redevelopment of a park in Istanbul. A spokesman for Erdogan's AK party says he's agreed to abide by a court ruling on the park plan.
