At around 23:15 o’clock, one mid-age woman, apparently a passer-by, was pepper-sprayed in close range. She fell down, but riot police ran by ignoring her.

Reporters were pepper-sprayed as well- just as police’s usual “friendly” behavior towards the press.

From the photo above, it is clearly seen that the reporters were sprayed deliberately, even their cameras could not escape from that.
