"Garbage bins are being burned, cars have been burned, windows have been shattered," said city councillor Manolo Garcia.
Manolo Garcia, a city councillor in Roquetas del Mar in the province of Almeria, said the killing of the 41-year-old man in the city led to protests which descended into violence in the working class neighbourhood of Cortijos de Marin.
"Garbage bins are being burned, cars have been burned, windows have been shattered," he told radio news station Cadena Ser.
Local online newspaper Ideal published a photo of a garbage container engulfed in flames in the middle of a street near a pharmacy as well as a video of man pushing a garbage container onto a burning car.
Police found the body of the man from Guinea-Bissau on a street in Roquetas del Mar in the early hours of Friday.
Police suspect the man was stabbed following a dispute over a traffic accident, local media reported.
About 30-40 people had taken part in the unrest but police have since brought the situation under control, the assistant deputy of the national government in Almeria, Andres Garcia Lopez, told Cadena Ser.
"At this moment the situation is back to normal," he said. Police would remain at the scene throughout the night and for the next few days to prevent any renewal of unrest, he added. No one was injured in the riot and no arrests were made, Lopez said.Source
TheLocal does its usual politically correct obfuscation of the ethnic origins of the perps. But Europapress says the African was stabbed by a group of gypsies.
