SKOPJE, Macedonia (AP) — Macedonian police say they’ve filed criminal charges against 15 people suspected of being involved in a violent attack against the parliament three days ago.
Police said Sunday the group was charged for “participation in a mob and preventing officials from performing their duties.”
Months of political tensions in Macedonia boiled over Thursday night over disagreements about the election of a new parliament speaker. More than 100 people were injured, most of them protesters. Police officers and about a dozen lawmakers also were injured.
