Police clash with pro-migrant protesters on Austria-Italy border

Several hundred young protesters clashed with Italian anti-riot police Saturday near the Austrian-Italian border during a demonstration against Vienna’s proposed anti-migrant measures. The protesters, who briefly occupied the small train station at the Brenner Pass, were confronted by police as they tried to cross the border from Italy into Austria. Two police officers were wounded and a police car was torched while several protesters were arrested, according to Italy’s AGI news agency.
