3 Persons Killed In Clashes Against Albanian Leader

Socialist Party leader Edi Rama on Saturday directly accused Interior Minister Lulzim Basha of abuse of post and Prime Minister Sali Berisha of being the "political orchestrator" of the deaths.

"We condemn the violence today in Albania," he said. "The use of provocative rhetoric and the suggestion or tolerance of any form of violence is a deep disservice to the people Albania. They deserve better."

Some protesters threw stones from the top of a pyramid-shaped building near the office of Prime Minister Sali Berisha and set light to a police car and other vehicles.

Organizers later claimed the number increased to up to 300,000. Police did not give any figures.

Health officials said at least three people were shot and killed, and authorities said more than 130 police and demonstrators were injured.

"In recent days the rhetoric and the language of selected political leaders have assumed a tone that suggests an endorsement of disruptive and harmful acts and inappropriate conduct," it said in a statement.
