Albania: Demonstrators throw petrol bombs at PM’s office

In Albania, anti-Government demonstrators threw petrol bombs against the government building in capital Tirana.

Wearing gas masks, the Police guarded the building as demonstrators continued throwing petrol bombs at the building.

Supporters of Opposition parties have been protesting for the past three months in a bid to force the Government to call early elections. The Opposition, which alleges fraud during the 2017 parliamentary elections, is organizing demonstrations while boycotting Parliament, however Prime Minister Edi Rama has denied the allegations.

The European Union and the United Nations have maintained that the Government is a legitimate one and called on the Opposition to return to Parliament and participate in local elections in June.
