Madrid protesters attack Israeli businessmen


Pro-Palestinian protesters atttacked several Israeli businessmen at a conference at a Madrid university.

One of the Israelis was injured Monday at the start of the Spain-Israel Chamber of Commerce’s conference at Madrid’s Autonomous University.

About 200 students threw stones at the Israelis, chanted “Murderers,” and broke the window of the police car that they took refuge in, according to reports.

The students were protesting the deaths of nine activists on a Gaza-bound flotilla that was intercepted by Israeli naval commandos.

Following the violence, the university called off the conference.

Police said most of the rioters were Muslim, Ynet reported. No arrests have been made in the assaults.
