French police fired tear gas and used water cannons to disperse anti-G7 protesters in Bayonne, southern Spain, as leaders of various industrialized nations gathered to attend a summit in Biarritz.

Since Monday, anti-capitalist activists, environmental activists and various anti-globalization groups have gathered in Bayonne to attend a meeting in southwestern France that organizers say will be held peacefully.

More than 9,000 anti-G7 protesters took part in the largest demonstration yesterday and marched across bridges connecting France and Spain.

The initially peaceful atmosphere without any unwanted incidents turned tense in Bayonne when hundreds of protesters shouted anti-government slogans, but paved the way to find space to enter the city center.

Police deployed to the location to control the situation succeeded in setting up barriers to prevent participants’ escape.

The protesters, however, tried to break through the barricades while trying to disperse the police for over an hour.

Things returned calmly and participants began dispersing by the afternoon after police fired tear gas and water cannons.

Local authorities have yet to disclose the number of participants detained so far.
