ANKARA – 10 July 2017: Tens of thousands of people have gathered in Istanbul at the end of a 450km protest march against the government of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, BBC News reported.

They are demonstrating against the mass dismissals and imprisonments that followed last year's failed coup.

President Erdogan has accused the marchers of supporting terrorism.

He said the Republican People's Party (CHP) - which has organized the march - had gone beyond political opposition and was "acting with terrorist organizations and the forces inciting them against our country".
