Eight African immigrants arrested after riots

A total of eight African immigrants were arrested after weekend riots erupted in a southern Spanish town following the fatal stabbing of a Senegalese man.

MADRID - Spanish police have arrested a total of eight African
immigrants after weekend riots erupted in a southern town following
the fatal stabbing of a Senegalese man, officers said on Monday.

Four of the men, two from Senegal and two from Guinea
Bissau, were detained on Sunday evening after a renewed outbreak
of violence in Roquetas de Mar.
 

On Saturday a number of Sub-Saharan immigrants vandalised
property, burnt rubbish bins and threw stones and bottles at
police after the 28-old Senegalese man was killed.
 

A witness said the man was knifed as he tried to intervene
in a dispute between Senegalese and Roma families in the area.
 

The dispute is believed to have been over an unpaid debt, a
police representative told radio station RNE.
 

Rioters set fire to two homes which they believed belonged
to family members of the culprit as well as burning a number of
parked cars, the police said.
 

About a third of the town's residents are immigrants, many
of whom work in the agricultural sector.
