Police officers had to rush to La Santa yesterday after a group of young unaccompanied migrants who are staying in the local hostel got involved in a fight with local youths.

The confrontations started on Saturday, following an argument between a local youth and a group of migrants on the bus to La Santa.

Matters escalated yesterday when a group of young migrants and local youths began throwing stones at each other, causing passers-by on the la Santa promenade to run for safety.

Around a dozen police officers from Arrecife were called to the zone, and are investigating video footage of the disturbance.
