  • Description

    Groups of stone-throwing students clashed with police on the Madrid University campus on Tuesday (18 January) following Monday's violence over the dismissal of 4,000 medical students. But eyewitnesses said Tuesday's incidents were more sporadic and involved fewer students than the day before.

    During Tuesday's clashes, groups of students hurled stones at 12-man police squads patrolling the campus and there were a number of running battles. A police helicopter hovered low overhead and about 20 policemen on horseback patrolled the campus earlier in the morning.

    The 4,000 students were dismissed last week after a four-day boycott of classes. University authorities say bout 2,000 have appealed against their dismissals on the grounds that they did not take part in the boycott.
