“Seventeen people, including ten policemen, were injured during last night’s violent protest in front of Parliament in Skopje.

26 people were arrested after pushing down the protective fence outside the Parliament, throwing rocks and pyrotechnics at the building and at the riot police and after trying to storm the Parliament, the Interior Ministry (MoI) said Monday.

‘Around 21:20h, a group of nearly 50 protesters ran to the Macedonia square and stormed two establishments before trashing the inventory and causing panic amongst guests. Also, the protesters threw teargas in one of the establishments. A van close to Holiday Inn hotel was set on fire,’ the Ministry said in a press release.” (Nezavisen)
