Palermo, November 16 - Three police officers were
injured on Friday in clashes with young people taking part in a
student protest in Palermo against the government's austerity
policies.
The officers were hit during a charge to clear a central
area, near the Sicilian city's cathedral, after protesters moved
towards a venue where Senate Speaker Renato Schifani was taking
part in a conference.
The police came under a barrage of stones, bottles and
firecrackers during the clashes.
The incident comes two days after trouble marred nationwide
protests that were part of the anti-austerity European Day of
Action and Solidarity.
There were scenes of mayhem in Rome on Wednesday and photos
and images of apparent acts of police brutality have prompted
Interior Minister Anna Maria Cancellieri to vow that officers
who used excessive violence will be punished.
The entrances of Palermo's central station were closed to
stop a group of young people in the area from occupying the
tracks, as occurred two days ago.
