Potential for more anti-government protests in Macedonia

Anti-government protests in Skopje turned violent yesterday. Political tensions have been high since March, after a court decision was made to allow the president to pardon politicians accused of election fraud.

Advice For Travellers

Travellers should be aware that protests could occur unexpectedly. To minimize safety risk, always avoid areas of large public gatherings or protests. Leave an area if tension begins to develop between groups. If necessary, avoid the areas of government buildings.
