Protests in Albania over killing of man who broke Covid curfew

Hundreds of protesters took to the streets of the Albanian capital, Tirana, on Wednesday after the police allegedly killed a man for breaking a coronavirus curfew.

The police said Klodian Rasha, 25, refused to stop when officers asked him. They added that they had to run after him, and one of the officers shot him, thinking he was armed.
