A protest organized by a group of miners in front of Prime Minister's Edi Rama office, degenerates in tensions and clashes with police on Wednesday evening.
The origin of the clashes was an attempt made by the protesters to enter the Prime Ministry premises.
The miners argued that this act was in fact a response to the disregarding attitude shown by Premier Rama to their appeal for the approval of their status without further delays.
They also accused the government of a complete lack of willingness to definitively resolve this issue.
