Coronavirus: Belgrade protesters storm Serb parliament over curfewPolice and protesters were hurt in riots that broke out outside the National Assembly in the Serbian capital Belgrade.

The protests began peacefully and included students and families, angered by a decision to re-impose a weekend curfew because of a rise in coronavirus infections.

Protesters broke into the assembly, prompting police to intervene.

Clashes erupted and police fired tear gas to disperse the protesters.

Far-right nationalists have been blamed for stirring up the unrest and storming the assembly building. Serbian media said they included an MP who has pushed anti-vaccine and anti-5G conspiracy theories.
