Multi-cultural suburbs of the Spanish capital Madrid have been set aflame after African migrants rioted Thursday night and into Friday morning following the death of a Senegalese street vendor.
The 35-year-old illegal migrant died of a heart attack, but rumours quickly spread that he died while being pursued by police. Madrid’s police have denied this claim as have the emergency services who were first on the scene.
The African rioters claimed they were protesting “racism” as they engaged in looting, burning and attacking of police and civilians alike.
At least 20 people were injured in the migrant violence which saw multiple cars, buildings, public spaces and businesses destroyed.
