    Three policemen were injured as a result of clashes with anti-fascist protesters in Turin amid mounting tensions ahead of Italy's general election.

    Those gathered in the center of Turin were protesting against a meeting of the right-wing movement CasaPound when the violence flared. The anti-fascists threw bottles and stones at the police officers, who were trying to prevent the protesters from reaching a demonstration in support of CasaPound candidate for Italy's general election Simone Di Stefano. Police had to use tear gas and water cannons to disperse the angry crowds.
