  • Description

    An Italian policeman was killed and another wounded when renewed rioting in Milan erupted into violence yesterday (Thursday). The policeman was killed by a bomb -- possibly a hand grenade.

    Despite a ban on all demonstrations about 500 rightwing marchers tried to reach a square where a neofascist meeting was to have been held. As the police moved to prevent them, petrol bombs and stones were thrown. The police replied with teargas.

    The previous day there had been violent clashes between the police and leftwing students -- leading to the authorities imposing the ban on demonstrations.

    SYNOPSIS: Despite an official ban on demonstrations, unrest in Milan continued on Thursday when five-hundred right-wing marchers tried to reach an neofascist meeting. The ban had been imposed the previous day after violent clashes between police and leftwing demonstrators -- injuring more than twenty on both sides. Police responded to Thursday's confrontation with teargas.

    More violence ensued. The marchers threw stones, petrol bombs and one genuine bomb -- probably a grenade. It killed one of the police, wounded another. Other policemen were also injured before the demonstrators were dispersed, and fifteen of them rounded up for questioning.
