Albanian protesters try to break into government building

TIRANA, Feb 16 - Albanian opposition supporters broke a police cordon on Saturday after throwing petrol bombs and flares and began trying to smash the doors of the building that houses the office of Prime Minister Edi Rama, in a protest calling for him to step down.
A security officer appealed for calm as some protesters tried to dismantle scaffolding that protects an illuminated canopy - a piece of artwork dear to Rama.
Tear gas was thrown from above on the rioters, who were using metal rods to try to break the doors.
