Madrid rally turns into riots

The demonstration began in the evening in the capital’s central square Puerta del Sol. At first several hundred young people chanted slogans demanding Acel’s release, and after about an hour after the rally began they began to break into neighbouring streets. Various objects were flying at the police, who were forming cordons, young people were ripping out road signs and overturning rubbish bins. The police use batons against those trying to break through outside the square.
