Atletico fans in Madrid disturbances

Spanish police arrested 52 people after a night of disturbances involving Atletico Madrid supporters celebrating their team’s Europa League victory.

Atleti fans turned out in their thousands in the centre of the Spanish capital after Los Colchoneros had beaten Athletic Bilbao 3-0 in the final played in Bucharest. However, La Vanguardia reports that things turned nasty during the early hours when several vehicles were set on fire, with shops looted after having their windows smashed and barricades set up: there was even damage to the front door of the famous Prado Museum.

In addition, 37 people had to be treated for injuries (including 12 police officers who were taken to hospital) as the Plaza de Neptuno, where Atletico followers usually celebrate their sporting triumphs, was turned into a riot zone.

Similarly, there were a number of other incidents in the vicinity of the clubs’ Vicente Calderon stadium where youths forced the doors of several establishments and stole fire extinguishers, uprooted road signs and disabled traffic lights.

Thanks for discussing your ideas on this blog. Likewise, a fntsaay regarding the finance institutions intentions whenever talking about property foreclosures is that the financial institution will not getreceive my installments. There is a specific amount of time that this bank is going to take payments occasionally. If you are very deep in the hole, they should commonly call that you pay that payment in whole. However, that doesn't mean that they will have any sort of installments at all. Should you and the standard bank can be capable to work anything out, the actual foreclosure method may halt. However, in the event you continue to miss payments within the new approach, the property foreclosure process can pick up where it was left off.
