  • Description

    Trouble flared again today (Saturday, October the 10th) for the fourth day in succession in Reggio Calabria over demands that this southern city be named as capital of the region.

    The city was almost cut off from the outside world with all trains and ferries brought to a standstill by a four-day strike.

    Police and demonstrators clashed again as police tried to clear away barricades, which blocked entrances to motorways and other major roads.

    The city is demanding to be made capital of the new Calabria region instead of the smaller city of Catanzaro.

    In similar disturbances last month over the same demand, two died and dozens were injured and arrested.

    Thousands of police and Calabinieri have been drafted into the city in the past months and have been living in the schools. Now school teachers have declared a three-day strike in protest at the schools becoming barracks.
