Turkish police have used water cannons and tear gas against crowds of protesters in Istanbul in an attempt to block them from marching to the office of an opposition newspaper whose staff have been arrested.

Saturday's protest came hours after Turkish authorities ordered the arrests of nine staff members of the opposition Cumhuriyet newspaper and detained more pro-Kurdish officials, widening an anti-terrorism probe that has drawn condemnation from the West.

On Friday the co-leaders of the pro-Kurdish opposition Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) were also jailed pending trial.
Tear gas filled some streets in the Sisli neighbourhood of Istanbul, a Reuters reporter near the scene said, while police helicopters were heard buzzing overhead.
