ANKARA, June 5 (Xinhua) -- Another anti-government demonstrator was killed Wednesday during clashes with Turkish police, bringing the death toll of the protests to three, a representative of the Turkish Medical Association (TTB) said.

The victim, who was wounded in his head during clashes in capital Ankara, died of his injuries on Wednesday, the representative was quoted as saying by local media.

Earlier in the day, TBB said two people were killed and over 4, 100 from 12 provinces were wounded in the week-long anti- government protests across Turkey.

The protest started as a peaceful demonstration against the demolition plans of Taksim Square's Gezi Park in Istanbul and later turned into clashes between the police and thousands of protesters.

The protests have spread to 67 provinces, including Ankara and the coastal cities of Antalya and Izmir.

On Tuesday, the government started to soften its tone after Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc apologized to the protesters for the excessive force used by the police.
