  • Description

    CROWDS OF STUDENTS SURROUNDED POLICE HEADQUARTERS IN ZURICH LAST NIGHT AND EARLY TODAY, HURLING BOTTLES AND STONES AT POLICE GUARDING THE PREMISES. IT WAS THE SECOND NIGHT OF DEMONSTRATIONS BY STUDENTS. THEY WERE DEMANDING THE RELEASE OF THREE STUDENTS DETAINED IN THE HEADQUARTERS AFTER SATURDAY NIGHT'S RIOTS.

    POLICE TURNED WATER CANNONS ON THE DEMONSTRATORS, WHO HIT BACK WITH PAVING STONES AND PLANT POTS TAKEN FROM NEARBY GARDENS.

    EVEN WHEN THE THREE DETAINED STUDENTS WERE RELEASED, VIOLENT SCUFFLES CONTINUED AND TRAFFIC IN THE CENTRE OF ZURICH WAS ALMOST AT A STANDSTILL.

    A NUMBER OF POLICE AND STUDENTS WERE INJURED AND A NUMBER OF STUDENTS WERE ARRESTED.
