Serbia: Thousands brave cold for fifth week of anti-govt protest in Belgrade

Tens of thousands of people took to the streets of Belgrade for the fifth week running on Saturday to protest against the government of Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic. Protesters holding banners and signs with anti-Vucic slogans, blew whistles and shouted that the president was a «thief,» as they marched through the Serbian capital. A section of the protest held a banner reading 'One of... Еще the five million,' referring to Vucic's statement that he would not meet protesters' demands, even if five million people showed up on the streets. Protesters demanded the resignation of Interior Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic, as well as a transparent investigation into the assassination of Kosovo Serb politician Oliver Ivanovic, who was killed last January in Kosovo. The demonstrations started on November 23, after opposition politician Borko Stefanovic was attacked and beaten in the southern city of Krusevac. Police arrested three suspects, but they were later released on December 25.
