Early Poll Plan for Macedonia Strife

The EU says that it has brokered an agreement between Macedonian politicians to end months of unrest with an early election by April 2016. The crisis was sparked by covert recordings which appear to show ministers plotting vote-rigging and the cover-up of a murder. Adding to the instability, eight police officers and 14 ethnic Albanian fighters were killed in clashes in May. The EU says details of the plan will be finalized next week in Brussels.
