About 50 policemen were injured in Skopje, the capital city of North Macedonia, during protests against government concessions on ethnic rights as part of EU accession talks, Macfax news agency reported, citing police on Wednesday.
Two of the injured policemen were seriously wounded during the protests on Tuesday. Eleven protesters were arrested.
The Revolutionary Macedonian Interior Organization and the Macedonian Democratic Party of National Unity called for demonstrations, out of anger over concessions granted to Bulgaria in light of EU accession talks.
Demonstrators reportedly threw stones, fireworks, and other objects at police, and damaged government buildings, including part of Parliament and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
