Turkey here, Turkey there, it’s Turkish news every where.. heheh remember that old song by MR. president ? the Coco Jambo song?
Well, yes! Indeed the Turkish protests and clashes with the police are sending out a huge number of photos through the web, therefore you will notice in this week’s POW four photos from turkey.
And beside turkey, we have chosen a group of photos from around the world most of them are protests (is it a new virus spreading? why not!), along with the tragic story of the little girl in china, and some funny/weird photos as well.
Yalla have fun watching the photos.
