Turkish police have used teargas and pepper spray to halt a pride march in Ankara

At least 36 people have been detained in Turkey’s capital for marching during Pride Month.

The marchers were reportedly dragged across the ground before being handcuffed and put into buses.

It comes a week after more than 300 people were detained for a similar event.

The gatherings are banned in cities across the country for security reasons.

Among those arrested at last week’s march in Istanbul were journalists and 34 people under the age of 18.

Japan has also taken a tough stance on LGBTQ+ rights, with the nation recently banning gay marriage.
