The situation intensifies in Turkey where protest leaders are now scheduled to sit down face-to-face with the very man they've been rallying against: The prime minister.
Protests reached a fever pitch in Taksim Square last night when demonstrators fended off tear gas, water cannons and stun grenades. And, at times, they themselves set off fireworks in celebration and protest. There was cleanup this morning, but riot police are back out in the square.
Senior International Corresponent Arwa Damon joins us live from Istanbul overlooking Taksim Square with the latest developments.
