Madrid, Spain (CNN) — Thousands of protesters fed up with the country’s austerity measures demonstrated here Tuesday outside the congressional building.
Clashes between police and demonstrators in central Madrid’s Neptuno Square resulted in 28 people being hurt, two of them police officers, a police spokesman said.
The spokesman said 22 people among the estimated crowd of 6,000 had been arrested.
Demonstrators said police were shooting into the crowd with rubber bullets; the police would not comment.
“We have you surrounded,” some demonstrators sang. “We have no fear.”
