Protesters stormed into Macedonia's parliament and assaulted MPs - VIDEO

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

 

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

 

A Reuters witness saw police firing stun grenades at protesters, clearing the way for ambulances.

 

"In an attempt to take under control of the situation inside and outside the parliament, we have ordered police to use all measures," Agim Nuhiu, the interior minister in an interim government said.

 

"We are using stun grenades in order to allow the evacuation of the MPs."
