Unrest in Palermo

Students set a rubbish container on fire during a demonstration on December 22, 2010 in Palermo.

Rallies across the country came just over a week after protest clashes in the center of Rome that injured nearly 200 people and saw cars set alight and tear gas fired in some of the most tourist-heavy streets of the Italian capital.
