People fall as Turkish riot police disperse protesters using water jets during an anti-International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank protest near the summit area in Istanbul on October 7, 2009. The security forces moved against the crowd of about 300 people — mostly youths from leftist and anarchist groups — as soon as they started to march from the downtown neighbourhood of Sisli to the nearby convention centre where the meetings were held.
