PSP police had to shoot rubber bullets in the air on Sunday after ‘dozens’ of people were found in bars and cafés in Cova da Moura, Amadora – one of the 121 boroughs under tight Covid restrictions.

Some of the people ‘threw stones’ at agents, as well as empty bottles, say reports. But the shots managed to disperse the crowds. There were no arrests or injuries, reports Jornal de Notícias.
