BRUTAL cops have attacked student protesters in Valencia, sparking public outrage across the Spanish state.
Several hundred young people, responding to appeals on social networks, gathered on Monday outside the institute Lluis Vives.
Reports AFP: "The clashes broke out in the mid-afternoon after students protesting against education budget cuts, which they say have left classrooms without heating, demonstrated outside a school and came up against police barricades.

"El Pais newspaper said on its website that police fired rubber bullets, and media reported numerous injuries."
