Anti-fascists clash with police in Italy
Text size Aa Aa

Anti-fascist demonstrators have once again clashed with police in Italy ahead of the country's upcoming general election.

In Turin, leftist demonstrators tried to break through a police cordon around a hotel where the far-right CasaPound party was holding a rally.

They were pushed back by riot police using water cannons and tear gas.

Three officers were injured in efforts to keep protestors away from the hotel and a number of arrests were made.

The recent rise in far-right nationalism has sparked a serious political debate in Italy about how the country is coming to terms with its fascist past.

Many are concerned how the rise of neo-fascism will be reflected in the upcoming election.
