  • Description

    After two days of rioting against the decision to split the functions of regional capital between L'Aquila and the rival town of Pescara, demonstrators in L'Aquila seem determined to carry on their protests.

    This film by Visnews staffman Pino Giambattista shows police and demonstrators clashing in the streets, injured policemen, general destruction, and the burning litter left by the violence in the central square of L'Aquila.

    Police are anxious to end the violence before it reaches the proportions of the protracted civil revolt over similar grievances in the south Italian city of Reggio Calabria.
