They say that 17 people were detained (or taken in police custody?) and that police awaits more fighting in the night.

Media talk about 150 injured policeman, three of them injured heavy - one was even attacked by a demonstrator with a knive, they say.

But, no information about how many of the tenthousands of demonstrators were injured...

But in the TV news they say, that police had to carry away and protect children, which were among other "peaceful" demonstrators", endangered by the thrown bottles and stones. By broadcasting single interviews they wanted to proof that a lot of "peaceful" demonstrators are angry about the violent demonstrators and that they had been provocating the police. Even the organisers of the demonstration said, that they distance themselves from violent demonstrators.
