“A Macedonian court on Wednesday launched a trial of 33 men, including five opposition MPs and a former interior minister, accused of involvement in a violent attack on parliament last year.

Scores were injured in the bloody rioting that erupted on April 27, 2017 after around 100 nationalist demonstrators, including masked men, stormed into the Skopje assembly to protest the vote for a new parliamentary speaker.

Several lawmakers were beaten in the melee, including Social Democrats leader Zoran Zaev, who has since become prime minister.” (Yahoo News)
