    Police used batons and pepper spray to break up a small group of activists, who were throwing stones and smoke bombs, during a second day of anti-capitalist demonstrations in Frankfurt.

    Around 7,000 'Blockupy' protesters demonstrated their opposition to the austerity measures sweeping Europe in response to the financial crisis.
