Some 5,000 protesters marched through the Macedonian capital Skopje and pelted paint-bombs at the main government building and police on Monday. The protesters demanded the government's resignation following a scandal involving the wiretapping of over 20,000 top officials, journalists, judges and politicians. Although the demonstrators welcomed President Gjorge Ivanov’s decision to rescind pardons for government officials caught in the scandal, they said it was not enough.
