Clashes between Macedonian police, ethnic Albanians during protest over lake killings verdict
Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, July 4, 2014 11:01 AM EDT
Hundreds of stone-throwing ethnic Albanians protesting a Macedonian court ruling have clashed with police, who fired water cannon and tear gas at the crowd to prevent them from storming a court building.
The Easter 2012 shootings of the fishermen, in a lake near Skopje, fueled simmering tensions between Macedonia's Christian Orthodox majority population and the mostly Muslim ethnic Albanian minority.
Two policemen were injured in the clashes, which followed Friday prayers at a mosque.
