Thousands of Democratic Party of Albania (PD) supporters, led by opposition leader Lulzim Basha, gathered in the center of Tirana on Saturday afternoon to protest against the ruling government and its alleged corruption. During the protest, opposition supporters set fire to effigies of Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama, Interior Minister Saimir Tahiri, and Minister of Health Ilir Beqaj. More than 1,500 police officers were deployed to secure the protest.
