Protests between police and demonstrators continued into the night in front of the parliament building in Madrid. Around 1,000 demonstrators tried to shut down the government in a protest over the country's austerity measures and tax hikes. The protest turned violent earlier in the day after demonstrators tried to tear down the barrier that blocked the entrance to parliament. The protest happened on the same day the country's unemployment figures were released... a record 27 percent with more than six million people out of work. Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy is expected to announce further reforms to help cut Spain's deficit later on Friday.
