Violent Anti-government Protests Grip Macedonia's Capital

Violent protests gripped the Macedonian capital of Skopje on Tuesday over alleged government attempts to cover up the 2011 death of 22-year-old Martin Neskoski, who was beaten by police during post-election celebrations. At least 1,000 people took to the streets of Skopje, demanding justice for Nekoski on Tuesday night. Protests turned violent hours after Macedonia's opposition leader Zoran Zaev accused Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski of attempting to conceal Neskoski's death, and played audio evidence allegedly of several leaders discussing the cover-up.
