Additional footage of the storming of the Moldovan parliament building.
This item updates item 'Riots in Moldova, Parliament trashed'

Demonstrators in Moldova have attacked the country's parliament in protest at the victory of the governing Communist Party in Sunday's general election.

Witnesses say crowds poured into the building, smashing windows and setting light to furniture.

Police said a woman died from carbon monoxide poisoning after inhaling fumes in a blaze, state television reported.

President Vladimir Voronin urged an end to "destabilisation", but opposition leaders have backed the protests.

They say the election result was fraudulent.

EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana has urged all sides in the former Soviet state to refrain from violence, and Russia also voiced its concern.

'Bloodshed' claim

Communist Party leader Mr Voronin, who will step down as president this month after two terms in office, told ministers there was "no evidence of any irregularities during the election".

  • 'Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin said he was concerned about the protests, which he described as 'provoked.' '

    The fraudulent Moldovan election has grubby Russkie finger prints all over it. Can never trust those Russians to do anything good and wholesome, they are pretty evil bastard psychopaths, those stinky Russians want to meddle in other country's business and then act all defensive and deny any wrongdoing when the shit hits the fan......
