A Turkish woman affected by tear gas cries in the city center in Ankara, Turkey, Monday, June 3, 2013. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday again dismissed street protests against his rule as actions organized by extremists, qualified them as a temporary bleep, and angrily rejected comparisons with the Arab Spring uprisings. Appearing defensive and angry, and cutting a disconnected figure, he lashed out at reporters who asked whether the government had understood "the message" by protesters airing grievances or whether he would soften his tone.(AP Photo/Burhan Ozbilici)
