Turkish riot police have attacked anti-government protesters with water cannons, tear gas, and plastic bullets in Istanbul. The angry protesters were calling for the resignation of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his government. More than 30 people were arrested in the clashes around Istanbul\\\'s Taksim Square. Similar demonstrations were held in the city of Izmir, and in the capital, Ankara, where police also fired water cannons to disperse the crowds. Erdogan is facing mounting pressure over the accusations he is trying to cover up a corruption and bribery scandal that has implicated his allies. But the prime minister claims the corruption probe is a \\\"smear campaign\\\" mounted by obscure international forces in order to undermine his government and the country\\\'s economy.
