Rioters in Instanbul charged on the police riot squad, overpowering them by throwing rocks and coming in mass numbers.

The charge was overwhelming, injuring many officers, who fled in response.

The rioters then picked up the abandoned police riot shield and utilized them, forming their own riot squad.
