Spain considers banning photos of police on duty

File - In this Sept. 26, 2012 file photo, police clash with protestors during a demonstration at the parliament against austerity measures announced by the Spanish government in Madrid. Spain's government said Friday Oct. 19, 2012 it is considering a ban on photographing, filming and reproducing images of police and state security forces while “in the exercise of their functions.” Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Saenz de Santamaria said that after months of television and internet viewing of sometimes violent clashes between police and demonstrators a balance had to be struck “between citizens' right to protest” and a need “to uphold the integrity of state security forces.” (AP Photo/Andres Kudacki, File)
