6 NABBED IN WARSAW AS ABORTION LAW PROTESTS INTENSIFY
Police in Warsaw arrested six people during the most recent protests against Poland's near-total ban on abortion, Deutsche Presse-Agentur (dpa).
Two police officers ended up in hospital after clashes with the demonstrators, a police spokesperson said.
Hundreds of people had taken to the streets in Warsaw and other major Polish cities for the third day in a row Friday night to protest the revised abortion law that came into effect this week.
The EU country's Constitutional Court had ruled that women could not have an abortion even if the unborn child had severe deformities.
The decision further tightened Polish abortion law, which was already among the strictest in Europe.
Now, abortion is legal in Poland, only if the pregnancy threatens the health or life of the mother or if it is the result of a crime.
