Commuters Hit Back

From today's Guardian:
Arson, looting and fighting with riot police broke out among angry Argentinian commuters when rush hour train services from a Buenos Aires station were delayed last night.

Twelve police officers were injured by flying rocks, mostly with cuts and bruises to the head and chest, and nine people were treated for smoke inhalation, said Alberto Crescenti, a spokesman for emergency medical workers.

Police fired rubber bullets and teargas when rioters pelted them with rocks as the fighting at Constitu├žion station spilled out to the street. Angry passengers shattered windows, set fire to a ticket sales area, looted shops and ripped payphones from walls.

I'd love to see some of this at Charing Cross.
