Turkish PM\'s aide who kicked protester fired

ANKARA- An aide to Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan who made front page news around the world after being filmed kicking a protester after Turkey's worst ever mining accident has been sacked, a government official said today.


Footage earlier this month showing Yusuf Yerkel apparently lashing out at the man - who was being held on the ground by two security officers - sparked widespread outrage and came to symbolize the government's widely criticized handling of the disaster, in which more than 300 people died.
