Burgos sees an evening of riots as protests against new coronavirus measures turn violent.
Protest have turned nasty in Burgos as members of the public took to the streets to protest the continued restrictions on public freedoms in Spain due to the new state of alarm.
The Burgos area of Gamonal saw violence break out between protestors and police in the area.
The clash occurred late on Friday, October 30, just as the evening’s curfew measures were coming into effect.
The initial protests saw over a thousand people take to the streets to demonstrate the actions being taken by the government and the infringements of the public freedoms. As the protesters started to dissipate around 40 members were left on Victoria Street, started burning rubbish containers and causing significant damage to public property.
However, their efforts were not supported by the local residents with many taking to their balconies to protest the riots and applaud the efforts of local police in containing the violence.
It is, as yet, unknown if any of the protesters were detained in police custody.
