Zehra Develioglu alleges that around 100 half-naked men with leather gloves attacked her while she was waiting with her baby for her husband near Kabatas tram station -- a claim widely trumpeted by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.Develioglu, 25, also claims she was a victim of sexual assault and said some protesters had peed on her on January 1, at the height of the unrest.
