PODGORICA (Sputnik) — Police used tear gas against the protesters participating in an anti-government meeting in the Montenegrin capital of Podgorica, a RIA Novosti correspondent reported on Saturday.
Earlier on the day, some 5,000 protesters took to the streets of Podgorica to call for the resignation of the country's government headed by Milo Djukanovic. They also stood against country’s integration to the NATO alliance.
The correspondent reported that after using the tear gas, police continued pursuing the protesters running away from the rally, as well as journalists covering the event.
Last week, Montenegrin police forcefully dispersed a campsite of the opposition, the site of a prolonged protest in front of the parliament. The protesters had also called for the resignation of the government, accusing it of corruption and undemocratic practice.
