Arrests at Belgrade EuroPride gathering after ban

19 September, 12:24
(ANSA) - BELGRADE, SEP 19 - Serbian police arrested over 30 people as thousands of LGBTQ activists turned out for Belgrade's EuroPride march on Saturday, despite a government ban. The event had been intended as the cornerstone event of the EuroPride gathering. But the interior ministry banned the march earlier this week, citing security concerns after right wing groups threatened to hold protests. And although the march took place without major incident, local media said clashes broke out between counter-demonstrators and police. The interior ministry had also barred any counter protests but some far-right groups vowed to rally and gather in front of churches. (ANSA).
