Turkey PM Erdogan faces corruption claim

Riot police in Turkey have fired water cannon and tear gas at hundreds of protesters calling on Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to quit.

There has been uproar since a recording emerged which it is alleged features the prime minister and his son discussing how to hide large sums of cash.

Mr Erdogan insists the recording is a fake and has promised to punish those responsible.

James Reynolds reports from Ankara.
