Violent police charge against student protesters in Valencia

Ten people seriously injured so far, dozens of arrests
VALENCIA (Agencies) As we write, protests against education cutbacks continue on the streets of Valencia, where the police have been charging against protesters that include minors as well as their parents and grandparents. Matters turned nasty this afternoon. One witness said she, her daughter and granddaughter, aged 15, were standing on the curb when the police charged without apparent notice. The girl is one of ten people with serious injuries, according to reports. Politicians have asked for the Minister of the Interior's presence in Parliament tomorrow.
