From independent Reporter ander for CNN
Yesterday one of the TV news channels holds every year on the last day a TV broadcast,live, where they talk about the year with political party chairmen. The hotel which is located near the parliament building was attacked by protesters. TV equipment was destroyed, so the broadcast could not be sent. Then the protesters tried to get into the hotel but police stopped them, and later used teargas to get them out. Protesters where angry, shouting "government out" and "fascists". Some of the TV people, protesters and police received minor injuries.
