Talking Turkey


NBC's Richard Engel is in the middle of the protests going on in Turkey. Engel and his crew have had to add some new equipment to their coverage plans. 

Gas masks! 

Turkish police are using heavy amounts of tear gas, water cannons, and rubber bullets as they attempt to clear the area of the anti-government protestors who have occupying it for over a week.

Protestors responded with makeshift barricades, only to be overrun by the riot police.

For TV crews back here in the U.S., it makes covering Today's City Council meeting seem even more boring that usual.
