  • Description

    ABOUT 3,000 POLICE RAIDED ROME UNIVERSITY EARLY TODAY (SATURDAY) TO EJECT SIT-IN DEMONSTRATORS. STUDENT DEMONSTRATIONS HAVE PARALYSED THE WORK OF THE UNIVERSITY FOR THE LAST MONTH, AND DURING PRESIDENT NIXON'S VISIT TO THE ITALIAN GOVERNMENT MANY STUDENTS HAD CLASHED WITH POLICE.

    LESS THAN A HUNDRED STUDENTS WERE IN THE UNIVERSITY WHEN THE POLICE BROKE IN, AFTER SETTING UP A DEEP CORDON ROUND THE AREA. THEY TORE DOWN THE ROUGH BARRICADES THAT HAD BEEN PUT UP BY THE STUDENTS AFTER THE STREET CLASHES IN ROME LAST THURSDAY NIGHT DURING THE UNITED STATES PRESIDENT'S VISIT. THE POLICE MET VIRTUALLY NO RESISTANCE AS THEY MOVED FROM FACULTY TO FACULTY TAKING OUT THE DEMONSTRATORS.

    ABOUT FIVE HUNDRED STUDENTS WHO HAD BEEN IN THE UNIVERSITY LAST NIGHT LEFT BEFORE THE POLICE LORRIES ARRIVED. A REAR GUARD OF ABOUT 40 STUDENTS DETAILED TO WATCH THE UNIVERSITY GATES ALSO SLIPPED AWAY.

    THE POLICE FOUND 50 HOME-MADE FIREBOMBS INSIDE ONE BUILDING, AND SEVEN STUDENTS HAVE BEEN ARRESTED.

    PRESIDENT NIXON RETURNS TO ITALY TOMORROW TO MEET THE POPE.
