Return Fire

Clashes were still going on two hours after police stormed the square, which protesters had blocked off with a jumble of police barricades and park benches, garbage cans, twisted metal and bricks.

A plainclothes police officer, using a microphone, urged protesters to stop throwing stones and bottles at police, telling them, “Don’t worry, police will withdraw.”
