21.25 Madrid: More patrol cars arrived to La Latina square and San Francisco Street, and we could see a few ambulances and fire brigade trucks. Demonstrators disappeared. We waited for new information about people who were arrested.

21.42 Madrid: One witness assured La Haine that there was at least one person arrested: "I have seen one persone arrested in Montera Street, he wore black clothes, and he was lying on the ground with a cop stepping on his back”. We were afraid that there was at least one other person arrested.

22.00 Madrid: Several witnesses tell La Haine, that they have witnessed police arresting 4 people. Montera Street is still blocked. We saw an ambulance turning into that street driving to the attacked police station. It means that there were possibly injured demonstrators or police there.
