Protestors clash with police at WCup stadium

Protestors clash with police at WCup stadium

Hundreds of protestors clashed with police Monday outside the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium, venue for Wednesday's World Cup semifinal between India and Pakistan.
The protestors, whose demands were related to their local government jobs, were confronted by hundreds of police who were near the stadium to provide security ahead of the match.
"The protestors gathered nearby and moved toward the stadium in a bid to catch the attention of the media. They had to be pushed back," a local police officer, who declined to give his name because he was not authorized to speak to the media, told The Associated Press.
Witnesses said a the group of protestors swelled to almost 1,000 people. No arrests were confirmed.
