First event of it’s kind in southern European nation is attacked by youths

The first LGBT rights event in Albania, a bicycle ride, was attacked by explosives yesterday.

In a video of the incident, six explosions and a hate-filled shout is clearly audible, but the brave activists cycle on along a central boulevard in capital Tirana.

The organisers said some youths had jumped out and thrown explosives at them, they were thankful to the police for protecting them and that they were not scared off their mission.
