A MEETING BETWEEN TURKEY'S PRIME MINISTER AND REPRESENTATIVES OF ANTI-GOVERNMENT PROTESTERS ENDED WITHOUT A CLEAR RESOLUTION FRIDAY.AND THE OCCUPATION OF ISTANBUL'S GEZI (GEH-zee) PARK CONTINUES.

IT'S BECOME A CRISIS POINT FOR PRIME MINISTER RECEP TAYIP ERDOGAN'S POLITICAL LEADERSHIP -- AND HE HAS GIVEN THE PROTESTERS A FINAL WARNING TO LEAVE THE PARK -- OR BE REMOVED BY FORCE.

FOLLOWING A LATE NIGHT MEETING WITH ERDOGAN -- REPRESENTATIVES OF THE TAKSIM (tock-SIHM) SOLIDARITY GROUP SAID THEY WOULD TAKE THE RESULTS OF THE MEETING BACK TO THE PROTESTERS ON FRIDAY.

THE GOVERNMENT HAS SAID IT WILL SUSPEND A CONTROVERSIAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN FOR THE PARK -- UNTIL THE COURTS RULE ON ITS LEGALITY.

IF THE COURTS UPHOLD THE PLAN -- THE MATTER WOULD THEN BE PUT TO A REFERENDUM.

CONTROVERSY OVER THE REDEVELOPMENT OF THE PARK HAS GROWN INTO A BROADER PROTEST AGAINST ERDOGAN'S RULE -- WHICH OPPONENTS SAY IS INCREASINGLY CONSERVATIVE AND AUTHORITARIAN.

HE DENIES IT.

FIVE PEOPLE HAVE DIED AND THOUSANDS HAVE BEEN HURT AS PROTESTS AGAINST ERDOGAN HAVE SPREAD FAR BEYOND ISTANBUL.

FRIDAY -- POLICE USED TEAR GAS TO DISPERSE PROTESTERS IN A PARK IN ANKARA -- TURKEY'S CAPITAL.
