“A Macedonian court on Thursday jailed seven men for the attempted murder of an MP during an attack on parliament last year.

On April 27, 2017 some 100 nationalists, many of them masked, stormed the assembly in Skopje to protest against the choice of a new parliamentary speaker, an ethnic Albanian who had served as a defence minister in a previous conservative government.

Several other people, including MPs, journalists and police officers, were also injured in the bloody rioting.

‘The accused men tried to kill MP Ziadin Sela. The evidence against them was clear from the video material,’ said  judge Slavica Andrevska.” (World Bulletin)
