Spanish miners fire homemade rockets towards Spanish National Police in El Entrego, in El Pozo Soton, near Oviedo, northern Spain on July 4, 2012. Spanish coal miners burned tyres and blocked roads to protest against subsidy cuts that they say threaten tens of thousands of jobs. Spain's cash-strapped central government has slashed subsidies to the coal sector this year to 111 million euros ($142 million) from 301 million euros last year, part of wide-ranging cuts to lower its deficit.
