[dropcap]W[/dropcap]arsaw, Poland, 11.11.2014. Clashes have broken out between nationalists and police amid celebrations of Poland’s Independence Day. In one case, authorities turned a water cannon against the demonstrators. Polish media broadcast scenes of right-wing youth, some masked, throwing rocks, firecrackers and cobblestones at police in the streets of Warsaw.

Police said they had arrested several people, but wouldn’t specify how many.
