Several arrests over ‘anti-system’ riot in Florence

(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 3 – Italian police on Wednesday made
several arrests over an ‘anti-system’ riot in Florence in
October that saw militants clash with police and throw a molotov
cocktail at them.
    Hundreds of people took part in the spontaneous October 30
protest, organized after others in other Italian cities, and
which degenerated into a riot.
    Police said those arrested were close to anarchist circles in
Florence.
    Some 16 of the 20 people searched are linked to an anarchist
squat in Viale Corsica in the Tuscan capital, police said.
    Those arrested include anarchist students and hospitality sector
workers including a rickshaw driver and a waiter.
    Police are continuing a probe into who organized the protest.
