AP EXCLUSIVE: TURKEY-DOCTORS UNDER FIRE

ISTANBUL -- The tear gas at Taksim Square was so thick that doctors trying to treat the wounded in a makeshift clinic could barely breathe or see. So a group of doctors set off to find relief in a nearby hospital. They turned into an alley and came face-to-face with police, who launched tear gas canisters straight at the medics. While some medics this summer complained of mistreatment as they treated protesters against the Turkish government, the extent of the harassment has now become much clearer. In interviews with The Associated Press over the three months since, more than a dozen doctors said authorities had assaulted them with tear gas, chased and beat protesters in hospitals, pressured them to reveal the names of patients and ignored calls for more resources.
