• Thousands rally for Montenegro PM’s resignation


    PODGORICA, Montenegro: Police in Montenegro’s capital Podgorica fired tear gas on Saturday night to disperse several thousand people who rallied demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic, the third such clash in a week. Fifteen police officers were injured in the clash, including one seriously, while 24 protesters asked for medical help, mostly over problems caused by tear gas, Montenegrin Interior Minister Rasko Konjevic told reporters. Andrija Mandic, a MP and an opposition leader who was among the organizers of the protest, was detained, he added, giving no further details. Earlier, up to 6,000 people, according to a police estimate, chanted “Milo thief!” and “He is finished!” in front of the parliament building, demanding free and fair elections organized by a transitional government in place of Djukanovic, who has been in power since 1990.
