Clashes at third day of Spain austerity protest

Riot police and protesters have clashed in Madrid for the third time in less than a week during anti-austerity protests.

The demonstration on Saturday had been mostly peaceful, but police moved in when stones were thrown. A number of people were injured in the scuffles.

On Thursday, the Spanish government set out its budget for 2013, which includes cuts in public spending and unemployment benefits, as well as a freeze on public service salaries.
