Italy: Violent clashes erupt in Piacenza during protest over migrant shooting



Protesters faced off with police as Piacenza joined several cities in a nationwide anti-fascist protest on Saturday, following the shooting of six migrants in Macerata by a gunman with neo-Nazi sympathies.



Protesters attacked police with sticks and threw stones, while police retaliated with batons. The demonstrators carried a range of banners denouncing the return of fascism in Italy.



The nationwide protest has been taking place in the lead-up to March’s general election, which has been characterised by growing tensions over the migrant crisis.
