At least 142 Americans were injured as Portuguese police clubbed, kicked and rounded up about 400 U.S. sailors and Marines and British sailors in a late-night melee in Lisbon, U.S. military and diplomatic sources said Thursday. The violence grew out of a drunken brawl that began with four U.S. sailors in Lisbon's red-light district Wednesday night, attracted scores of others and ended with the arrests of 175 U.S. sailors and Marines, the Navy said.
