Police resorted to pepper spray and clubs Wednesday to break up a march by some 200 physicians to demand improvements in health care, the Dominican Medical Society (CMD) said.

The procession set out from Santo Domingo’s La Altagracia Maternity Hospital intending to reach the National Palace, the seat of government.
