Protests have entered the third week in Albania, as demonstrators demand Prime Minister Edi Rama's resignation and snap elections. Thousands of supporters of the opposition gathered at the main government building in the capital, Tirana, on Sunday demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Edi Rama.
Demonstrators chanted "Rama go away" and "corrupt government" as they threw firecrackers, stones and smoke bombs, despite organizers' pleas not to attack the police.
Rama is accused by many of corruption and organized crime. The opposition want him to resign and a transitional government to hold an early parliamentary election.
"The whole of our battle is for a free and fair election, for European values," said Democratic leader Lulzim Basha.
The US Embassy in Tirana condemned the violence during the demonstrations.
