Group obstructing highway - Basel city
Was driving back after a late night movie this evening from the Parkhaus Steinen towards Pratteln and to my surprise found the entire stretch in the St.Alban area (directly in front of the Zeughaus) to be completely blocked by a large group of people.
Going so far as to have parked cars in a way that stopped traffic flow in one direction (you could'nt actually enter the tunnel to get to and past St.Jakob).
Don't want to jump to any conclusions so I'll stick to pure facts and hopefully someone here can fill in the gaps (perhaps I simply missed a sign).
No police in sight, no placards being carried. Just a very large group - majority of young bald men, many wearing the same sort of orange t-shirt.
Maybe it was just a football match and for whatever random reason they were blocking the road.
I had to turn the car back onto the highway to be able to get to my destination, but since I find no reports yet on any of the police sites am wondering if anyone else here experienced the same thing.
