Spanish protests over government spending cuts and the country's dreadful unemployment rate turned violent when demonstrators hurled stones towards police.
Clashes broke out across Madrid's Neptuno Square last night with riot police seen striking out at several protesters during the disturbances.
Boisterous crowds in the Spanish capital had earlier yelled "Fire them, fire them!" at parliament, referring to the conservative government of Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy.
The action was the third time this week that the public vented their anger against the administration and its policies.
