It's just after 11 p.m. in Istanbul. Police have retreated in some cities, were still attacking demonstrators today in others. Prime Minister Erdogan, whose dictatorial style and attempts to institute sharia law are the focus of the nationwide protests, has left the country on a previously scheduled diplomatic trip after blaming terrorists, fringe elements, political opponents, low ranking police officers, and accepting no responsibility himself.
