Auckland protesters clash with police over Rugby

Anti-apartheid demonstrators clashed with police in Auckland just 36 hours after Prime Minister Robert D. Muldoon had talks with protest leaders, police, and Rugby officials to try to relieve tension over the South African Springboks tour of New Zealand. About 500 marchers rushed police protecting the premises of two companies accused of providing financi al aid for the tour, witnesses said.
