    Background: About 1,000 demonstrators in Reggio Calabria dispersed peacefully today (Monday) after they had been doused with red dye by a police-manned water cannon. There was no fighting. Riot police and troops stood by ready to move in if the situation developed.

    This was probably the most peaceful of all the demonstrations which have taken place int he Italian city since many of its population began campaigning for Reggio Calabria to be named as capital of the Province last July.

    We're sorry for the poor quality of this telerecording as it was taken as a rush story form the Eurovision circuit. There were several technical difficulties which didn't help in the speedy processing of this film.
