Livorno, June 18 - An Italian photographer who was
injured and arrested at protests in Istanbul has been released,
his sister said Tuesday.
Daniele Stefanini, 29, was struck in the head by Turkish
police on Saturday during a demonstration in the city.
After being hospitalized he was placed in police custody.
The Italian foreign ministry has confirmed his release.
His sister Alessia said he will return to Rome later on
Tuesday.
Since the beginning of anti-government protests in Turkey,
three people have been killed and about 7,500 injured - at least
50 of those seriously hurt.
A police officer was killed during a fall from a bridge
while chasing protesters, who began their demonstrations against
a park demolition but have moved on to demand broader government
reforms.
Lawyers are raising concerns about police violence against
demonstrators, many of whom have been peaceful.
Journalists are also being targeted and several have been
arrested and beaten.
