  • Description

    Police arrested about 150 people in Madrid on Tuesday night (May 1) after a policeman had been killed during a clash with left-wing demonstrators staging an illegal May Day rally. One of those arrested was a youth who police say they think played a major part in the killing.

    The police inspector, who died was the twenty-year-old son of a coal-miner from northern Spain. His throat was cut during a clash with left-wing youths staging the May Day demonstration in central Madrid, the country's capital. At a funeral ceremony on Wednesday (May 2) a colleague of the dead policeman told a reporter the demonstrators were armed with axes, knives, and iron bars with knife-blades strapped to the ends.
