Masked Protestors Storm Macedonia's Parliament

AFP

Macedonian police fired stun grenades on Thursday evening to disperse protesters outside the parliament and clear the way for the evacuation of lawmakers still in the building, Reuters reports.

Protesters stormed into Macedonia's parliament and assaulted the leader of the Social Democrats, Zoran Zaev, on Thursday after his party and ethnic Albanian allies voted to elect an Albanian as parliament speaker.

According to the source, some of the roughly 200 protesters inside the parliament were masked.

As witnesses note the police entered parliament after the disturbances erupted but did not immediately seek to quell the protesters.
