Authorities had deployed riot police and used bulldozers to demolish the huts set up by pro-democracy protesters when they had camped in the square to demand a regime change in 2011. These temporary shelters had not been removed from the square after protesters vacated it last year. It was not immediately apparent who had set the demolished huts on fire.

Cipotegato 2013 in Spain...TARAZONA, SPAIN - AUGUST 27:  The Cipotegato acknowledges the crowd after running through the streets on August 27, 2013 in Tarazona, Spain. Every year thousands of people gather in the main square of Tarazona waiting for "The Cipotegato" to throw tomatoes at him. The Cipotegato is a hooded character, dressed as a harlequin with a yellow, green and red costume. The Cipotegato is elected annually, and his identity revealed after the festival. He must run through the streets of Tarazona on a route known only to him, ending in the Plaza de Espana square, armed with a short wooden stick for defending himself. Upon arrival in the Square he must then scale a monument and tie a scarf around it, signaling the start of the main festivities of Tarazona. The roots of this event derive from the early recorded tradition in the middle of the XVIII century of giving a prisoner from the local prison the chance to escape to freedom.
