ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
A large crowd of anti-government protesters took to the streets in Turkish capital Ankara on Saturday (March 1) and clashed with police.
The protesters denounced the release of two ministers' sons and an Iranian gold dealer arrested as part of a corruption scandal on December 17.
With the latest releases, none of those originally detained two months ago is still being held.
The government has accused cleric Fethullah Gulen, whose followers wield influence in the police and judiciary, of concocting a graft scandal to compromise Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan and his government.
The scandal broke with police raids on December 17 but ties between the ex-allies have been tense for several years.
