So they fought them for a while,” an eyewitness spoke anonymously. The young men,

 

 

numbering about thirty, were angered by a warning shot from the police in an attempt to disperse the crowd. This resulted in a free-for-all fight between them and the police. They pelted the police with stones while the police also resorted to the use of the butts of their rifles. In the end, the police had to leave the main entrance to restore calm.
