A week-long strike in the southern Spanish province of Cadiz on Tuesday once again led to riots and clashes with police, media reported
In the morning, demonstrators blocked the entrances to the Navantia shipyard in Puerto Real and staged a picket in another industrial zone in the town of San Fernando. They then departed to the provincial capital of Cadiz to take part in the demonstration, also joined by students.
The manifestation turned violent, with protesters throwing objects at the police, who in response used rubber bullets.
The ongoing strike over workers' salary disagreements began last Tuesday and has seen regular violent episodes between protesters and police.
