According to Today's Zaman, a crowd of protesters gathered in Soma chanting "murderer" at Recep Tayyip Erdogan. He is then seen entering a local grocery store, in which an altercation takes place.
Erdogan is thought to have then attacked a man who is reported to have been chanting critical slogans at him. It follows claims that a senior adviser of the prime minister kicked a protester yesterday.
