A Macedonian court ordered Tuesday that three opposition MPs be held in judicial custody for a month while another three were placed under house arrest over an April attack on parliament. Scores of people were injured in bloody riots after some 100 nationalists, including masked men, broke into the assembly in Skopje on April 27 to protest against the vote for a new parliamentary speaker.

The six MPs, all from the conservative VMRO-DPMNE party, are among 36 people under investigation for suspected “terrorist endangerment of the constitutional order and security”. On Friday, the Balkan parliament voted to lift the MPs’ immunity to allow prosecution although the session was boycotted by VMRO-DPMNE deputies.

A few hundred people protested in the streets of Skopje on Tuesday in support of the detained MPs. The attack on parliament, which met with international condemnation, followed a long-running political crisis in the country. A month after the violence, Social Democrat Zoran Zaev who was beaten in the riots became prime minister.
