PASSENGERS on a mini-bus were left cut and bleeding after stone throwing thugs launched an attack.
Now the buses in Almeria old town will be diverted away from Calle Chamberi after 6 pm to avoid the troublesome area after what was the latest in a series of attacks.
The service is popular with old town residents as well as with tourists heading for La Alcazaba, the city’s main tourist attraction.
The decision was made after discussions between bus company Surbus and the city council.
Almeria City Security and Mobility councilor, Maria Muñiz explained that vandals had attacked mini-buses before, but now the assaults had got more dangerous.
“Stones were thrown in the latest attack and some of the passengers were cut by broken window fragments, with a few needing to be treated at Torrecardenas Hospital,” she said.
