    Several officers and refugees held in a migrant detention center in the Spanish city of Valencia were injured after police had to intervene to subdue the riot in the facility, local media reported on Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to El Mundo newspaper, the riot started late Sunday after at least 60 inmates had attacked two guards and took their keys.

    Some of them climbed to the roof, throwing stones at guards, while others burnt mattresses in the center’s outdoor area.

    Police used rubber bullets to quell the disturbance, while firefighters used a turntable ladder to take the migrants out from the roof early on Monday.
