Around 150 left wing protesters marched through Milan's city centre on Tuesday evening after police evicted two squats in the Corvetto area of the city earlier in the day.

Protesters threw molotov cocktails in the streets and police retaliated with tear gas as they approached the San Vittore prison, where those arrested during the evictions are being held.

Protesters were eventually pushed out to the south of the city.
