Erdogan Delays Park Plans

Ankara, Turkey — Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan delivered his most conciliatory speech since anti- government demonstrations began two weeks ago, saying plans to develop an Istanbul park are on hold and the message from protesters has been received.

Erdogan said there’ll be no redevelopment of Gezi Park in Taksim Square.
