Riot in Basel after squatter eviction
A riot broke out in Basel last night as police tried to evict squatters from a building.
Around 200 people gathered to stop the eviction – throwing fireworks and missiles at police.
A barrier was built along Erlenstrasse and police used rubber bullets to try to break up the demonstration.
One officer was wounded and treated in hospital – seven rioters were arrested and then released, according to Basel City Police.
