VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:

TRACK-1

THE NIGHTLY DEMONSTRATIONS SHAKING TURKEY DO NOT APPEAR TO BE AFFECTING THAT COUNTRY'S TOURISM INDUSTRY.

ISTANBUL'S CULTURAL ATTRACTIONS REMAINED OPEN ON TUESDAY, DESPITE ALMOST A WEEK OF VIOLENT PROTESTS.

SOUNDBITE: (English) John Bradberry, US businessman:

"We intended to come to Istanbul and we heard about the protests but we didn't see that as a threat to where we were going on anything, so we just came on, didn't change any of our plans."

TRACK-2

MANY TOURISTS SAY THEY WERE AWARE OF THE UNREST, BUT DECIDED TO COME ANYWAY.

OTHERS SAID THEY WERE TOLD THAT THE DEMONSTRATIONS HAVE BEEN LIMITED TO SPECIFIC AREAS, FAR FROM WELL KNOWN TOURIST ATTRACTIONS AND CULTURAL SITES.

PROTESTERS HAVE BEEN CLASHING WITH POLICE AND CALLING FOR THE RESIGNATION OF PRIME MINISTER RECEP TAYYIP ERDOGAN, CRITICIZING WHAT THEY DESCRIBE AS HIS AGGRESSIVE AND AUTHORITARIAN STYLE.

DIANE KEPLEY, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS.
