40 protesters & police injured in clashes after 1,000s demand resignation of Montenegro’s PM

RT, October 24

At least 40 people were injured after a massive rally attended by some 5,000 people ended in disorder near the parliament building in the Montenegrin capital of Podgorica. Police fired tear gas as protestors reportedly attempted to break in.

The rally began peacefully, as demonstrators called for an interim government and snap election in the country, which won its independence from Serbia in 2006.

However, tensions began to rise as the crowd reached the parliament building, which had been cordoned off by the police. Some protesters began allegedly throwing firecrackers at the building, after which police demanded that the demonstrators vacate the venue.

A video posted on YouTube shows a group of hooded protesters hurling Molotov cocktails and stones at the police.
