The rowdy mob was met by a steel barricade and a wall
of heavily armored special riot police.

Tensions
escalated quickly when the rowdy group, chanting “Death to enemies!” “Convict out!” “Bandits out!” attempted to break through police barricades using the
front loader. Police responded with flash grenades and tear gas, eventually

minutes, hundreds more arrived on the scene. Police reformed and prepared for
the next attempt, which proved again to be unsuccessful. Meanwhile, the crowd
continued to grow.
