Turkish protesters clash with riot police stationed on the John F. Kennedy Street, in front of the U. S. embassy in Turkish capital, Ankara, early Thursday, June 6, 2013. Turkish officials, scrambling to contain tensions, have delivered more conciliatory messages to thousands of protesters denouncing what they say is the government's increasingly authoritarian rule and its meddling in lifestyles. The efforts come ahead of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's return on Thursday from a four-day North African tour. (AP Photo/Burhan Ozbilici)
