In Turkish disturbances 11 were arrested and 2 police officers were found dead as people demonstrated against Turkish support for ISIS, Al-Alam News Network reports.

Turkish police detained at least 11 people overnight as anti-government protests following a suicide bombing blamed on ISIS turned violent in Istanbul and other cities.

Two police officers were found dead, shot in the head, in a house in the southeastern city of Sanliurfa on Wednesday, security sources said, though it was not immediately clear if their killing was related to the wider disturbances.

Protests erupted in a dozen or so neighborhoods in Istanbul late on Tuesday, as well as cities in the predominantly Kurdish southeast, after Monday’s bombing in the Kurdish town of Suruc near the Syrian border, which killed 32 people.
