VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:

TURKISH PRIME MINISTER RECEP TAYYIP ERDOGAN (REH'-jehp TY'-ihp UR'-doh-wahn) HAS ISSUED AN ULTIMATUM.

HE IS ORDERING PROTESTERS IN ISTANBUL'S TAKSIM (tock-SIHM) SQUARE TO BE REMOVED WITHIN 24 HOURS.

SO FAR, FIVE PEOPLE HAVE DIED IN THE UNREST.

AND THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE HAVE BEEN INJURED.

ERDOGAN'S COMMENTS COME ONE DAY AFTER HIS JUSTICE AND DEVELOPMENT PARTY PROPOSED A REFERENDUM ON OVER A DEVELOPMENT PLAN AT THE SQUARE THAT HAS FANNED TWO WEEKS OF PROTESTS.

A TURKISH PROTEST LEADER HAS BRUSHED ASIDE SUGGESTIONS THAT SUCH A REFERENDUM COULD QUELL THE PROTESTS.....WHILE THE COUNTRY'S INTERIOR MINISTER SAID HE HAS ORDERED A PROBE INTO ALLEGATIONS THAT POLICE HAVE USED EXCESSIVE FORCE.

IN ANOTHER DEVELOPMENT --- THE PRIME MINISTER LASHED OUT AT THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT OVER ITS RESOLUTION EXPRESSING CONCERN OVER THE UNREST.

THE NON-BINDING RESOLUTION SAID IT "DEPLORES THE REACTIONS OF THE TURKISH GOVERNMENT AND OF PRIME MINISTER ERDOGAN."

AFTER THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT ACCUSED HIM OF ADDING TO THE POLARIZATION OF THE SITUATION...HE FIRED BACK BY SAYING THAT HE WOULDN'T RECOGNIZE THE DECISION.
