Portugal News – fracas in Oura, Albufeira

The news in Portugal is that last night, Sunday 25 June 2017, disturbances in the bar district of Oura in Albufeira resulted in the intervention of the GNR, who cleared out the zone. (See Praia da Oura on the map.)

So far, the count of those injured in the clashes is two people.

Many people were already fleeing the scene when the GNR arrived. The GNR then fired rubber bullets into the air, and used batons and shields as they moved people away from the zone.

The offences are alleged to have involved a group of British tourists.
