Turkish riot police have used water cannon to disperse thousands of protesters in Taksim Square in Istanbul. Crowds have turned out in force despite a heavy police presence to commemorate three protesters killed in previous protests. James Reynolds is there.
在土耳其伊斯坦布尔塔克西姆广场,防暴警察动用水枪驱赶数千名抗议者。尽管面对大批警力,人们还是倾巢出动纪念在此前抗议中丧生的三名抗议者。詹姆斯·雷诺兹报道。

Several thousand protesters gathered in the evening in Taksim Square. They planned to commemorate those killed during this month’s unrest. But the police advanced and used water cannon to disperse the protesters. The crowds scattered into nearby hotels and cafes. Some chanted against the government, others threw flowers. This was the first large protest in the center of Istanbul for five days. It’s a sign that the protest movement against the government has not finished.

The White House has said it’s in talks with the authorities in Hong Kong about extraditing Edward Snowden, the former intelligence analyst charged with leaking US secrets about government surveillance. The Hong Kong government has refused to comment on reports that the US has asked for his detention and return. Katy Watterson reports from Washington.
白宫称正在与香港当局商讨引渡爱德华·斯诺登一事,这名前情报分析员被控泄露有关美国政府监督的机密。有报道称美国请求拘留斯诺登并将之送回美国,香港政府拒绝对此发表评论。凯蒂·沃特森在华盛顿报道。

The pressure is now on for Hong Kong to cooperate with the US authorities. A senior Obama administration official sounded a warning if authorities didn’t act soon, it could complicate relations between Hong Kong and the U.S. and raise questions about Hong Kong’s commitment to the rule of law. Authorities there has said very little so far refusing to confirm whether or not they received a request or to comment on reports that he may already be in that custody. The process to get Mr. Snowden back onto American soil may have started but it could be a lengthy process to appeals and legal obstacles before the task is complete.
香港仍面临与美国当局合作的压力,奥巴马政府一名高级官员警告说,如果香港当局不立即行动,将会使香港与美国关系复杂化,并让人质疑香港在法律上的立场。香港当局目前对此表态甚少,拒绝承认是否收到这样的请求,也不愿对斯诺登可能已被拘留的传闻作出评论。让斯诺登回美国的程序可能已经启动,但上诉可能是个漫长的过程,还要面临很多法律障碍。
