Rome, November 14 - Protesters in Italy's capital
clashed with police as demonstrations against rising
unemployment and austerity measures gripped the city, sending
traffic into tilt and closing down Rome's principle
thoroughfares.
Demonstrators from Italy's powerful CGIL labor
confederation, joined by student protesters and other fringe
groups ran riot among stand-still traffic on Rome's Lungotevere
road that runs alongside the Tiber river, throwing firecrackers,
bottles and pulling down street signs, police said.
Police also clashed with hardline protesters near Rome's
Synagogue as demonstrators hurled rocks and police fired
teargas.
Armoured cars were used to disperse crowds and so far
approximately 50 protesters have been detained by police.
At least 100 demonstrations were scheduled around the
country Wednesday, many of which have reportedly turned violent.
