Thousands in Serbia protested again Saturday against populist President Aleksandar Vucic as riot police deployed inside the country’s parliament, saying they wanted to prevent the opposition from storming the building.

France24 reports “that the protest in central Belgrade in front of the parliament building comes after months of anti-government demonstrations accusing Vucic of being autocratic and demanding that his government allow more democracy, media freedoms and free elections in the Balkan nation.

Opposition leaders said authorities sought to prevent their supporters from coming to Belgrade for the rally Saturday.”
