ROME, Dec. 6 (Xinhuanet) -- Railway protesters in Venaus, 60 km from Turin, clashed with police before dawn Tuesday, injuring six, Italian news Agency ANSA reported.
The clash occurred when police intervened to remove the demonstrators, who were protesting the building of a high-speed railway through Italian Alps, from the site where geological probes were to be carried out for the TGV line through the Val di Susa.
PANSA quoted protest leader Alberto Perino as saying that at least six people were injured, two of whom were taken out by ambulance.
The Railway project is questioned by the protesters for its usefulness, cost and environmental consequences. Enditem
