Salvadoran riot police shot at striking government social welfare workers trying to force their way into a San Salvador building. At least 22 people were injured, including officers and journalists, witnesses said. The violence reportedly began when policemen cornered one of the strikers and started beating and kicking him. A group of fellow workers went to help him. "Then suddenly, shots were heard and we all hit the ground," said one witness, a journalist who refused to be identified by name.
