  Riot police
by orlikins

We were in Prague for the IMF riots back in September 2000, so the city was under a <b>very</b> tight security alert. There were vans of cops everywhere! When the riot eventaully broke out, all sorts of western shops and banks and food chains got attacked - as you can see - <a href='http://www.redbrick.dcu.ie/~venus/prague/kentucky.jpg'>Kentucky Fried Chicken</a> got stones fired through their windows. This picture is of the riot police down Vodikova street.
