Protesters Firing Tear Gas Disrupt Inauguration Ceremony For Gangster Thug President Hashim Thaci


Protesters firing tear gas disrupted the inauguration ceremony Friday for Kosovo President Hashim Thaci in the midst of a political crisis over an EU-brokered agreement with old adversary Serbia.

Guests at the open-air event in central Pristina coughed and wiped their eyes as tear gas canisters were set off just before Thaci gave his inaugural speech to a 1,000-strong audience including Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama and diplomats.

Police said 12 people were arrested.
