African immigrants have rioted in Spain after a Senegalese man was stabbed to death in the street of a southern town. Police said the rampage began in the early hours of Sunday, and led to houses and cars being set on fire. After the 28-year-old man was killed in a fight in Roquetas de Mar, an angry gathering “degenerated into violence and public disorder,” a statement said. Police said they did not know what led to the attack, but they were looking for a local man. A witness said the man was killed as he tried to intervene in a dispute between Senegalese and Roma (Gypsy) families in the area, according to press reports. (BBC)
