Protests in the Turks and Caicos

BBC In the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI), British officials and protesters against British direct rule are meeting after prolonged protests in the streets this week.
The demonstrations are part of a long-running battle over control in the British overseas territory following a corruption scandal which led to a change in the status of the islands.

Demonstrators are also complaining about what they say are harsh economic policies, including pay cuts to civil servants and price increases for utilities.
