Altsasu: open wounds
In 2016, there were more than 9,000 fights in Spanish bars. However, only one was considered an act of terrorism by the Public Prosecutor’s Office of the Audiencia Nacional: the one that took place on the night of 15 October 2016 outside the ‘Koxka’ bar in the town of Altsasu, Navarra.
Eight young people were sentenced, serving between 2 and 13 years in prison for a bar fight.
