July 9, 2020

Thousands of citizens gathered in front of the National Assembly in Belgrade on Tuesday (7 July) night following the announcement of President Aleksandar Vučić that the new weekend-long curfew will be imposed this week due to the rising COVID-19 cases. 
After a smaller group of protesters tried to enter the country’s parliament, clashes with the police ensued, resulting in a series of tear gas bombs and arrests, during which both the protesters and the policemen were reportedly hurt.
