Thousands of opposition supporters set off on a 450-kilometre (280-mile) march from Ankara to Istanbul, Thursday, after Republican People's Party (CHP) MP Enis Berberoglu was sentenced to 25 years in prison for allegedly leaking 'state secrets' to the press.

Scuffles erupted between between police and some of the marchers who confronted a handful of hecklers on the sideline of the march route.

The protesters held placards reading "justice" and chanted Berberoglu's name as they headed towards the Maltepe prison near Istanbul, where Berberoglu is incarcerated.
