Protest against extremism in Madrid turns violent
( dpa ) - Police clashed with a group of young protestors of rightwing extremism Friday night in the Spanish capital, injuring at least one person and arresting six, local radio reported.
The group smashed shop windows, set garbage cans on fire and threw bottles and stones at police, who repelled the attacks with rubber bullets and teargas.
About 200 youths had earlier tried to prevent a rally by the rightwing groups Nation and Revolution, and Combat Espana ahead of parliamentary elections set for March 9. The clashes reportedly occurred as police tried to push the group back.
