Police have fired teargas after a massive rally in the capital of Montenegro, Podgorica, attended by some 5,000 people ended in disorder. The protesters converged on the parliament building with reports suggesting there have been attempts to break in.
The rally began peacefully, as demonstrators called for an interim government and snap election in the country, which won its independence from Serbia in 2006.
However, tensions began to rise as the crowd reached the parliament building, which had been cordoned off by the police. Some protesters began allegedly throwing firecrackers at the building, after which police demanded that the demonstrators vacate the venue.
