Turkish PM returns, protests continue.

ANKARA (TAP) - Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan flew back to a Turkey rocked by days of anti-government unrest on Friday and declared before a sea of flag-waving supporters at Istanbul airport: "These protests must end immediately."

Chanting "God is great," thousands of his supporters packed Istanbul's airport early Friday to welcome back the prime minister, who has been in North Africa all week.

"We can't allow anyone to behave in an unlawful way in this country, to destroy by vandalising, to destroy cities and private property and hurt our people", he said from on top a bus outside the airport terminal.
