There has been a huge outpouring of grief and anger in Turkey over the death of a teenage boy who was wounded in last year's anti-government demonstrations.

Berkin Elvan, 15, was hit on the head by a tear-gas canister in Istanbul while on his way to buy bread in June. He had been in a coma ever since.

Clashes erupted at the hospital where he was being treated and there was an outpouring of emotion as his coffin was carried through the city streets.
