US embassy warns its citizens about tomorrow’s protest of the opposition in Tirana

The US embassy has issued an alert today for US citizens regarding the protest that the Albanian opposition has announced for Saturday.

“A demonstration is expected to take place on January 27, 2018, beginning at 10:00 a.m.  The group intends to protest against the Albanian government.  U.S. Embassy personnel and family members are directed to avoid these locations while the protests take place”.

Through an email sent to US citizens in Albania, the embassy asks them to avoid the area in front of the government building, Skanderbeg square and Mother Teresa square.

The embassy also encourages US citizens to keep a low profile during Saturday’s rally.

Meanwhile, opposition leaders have assured that their protest will be peaceful. /balkaneu.com/
