The police cleared the park in Enge

There was a rather large police operation just now where they apparently cleared the park next to the lake in Enge. I saw six police cars and many police officers in riot gear. As I left they seemed to be firing something into the park. Tear gas? Rubber bullets?

Anyone have an idea what was going on? Pointers to news articles welcome.

Illegal party or some such.

They were using rubber bullets.

Could it have been this here? http://www.20min.ch/community/leser_...loest-21569660

Ah, too slow. Interestingly enough, both newspapers have the exact same opening paragraph.

Sure. 20MIN is part of the Tages Anzeiger group, and most of their journalists work for both papers. 20MIN is "TA-light"
