Opposition supporters gathered outside the presidential building during a
press conference of Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, a day after
opponents broke into the state-run RTS television building, demanding to
address the population, in images aired live. There have been weekly
opposition protests since December against what they describe as Vucic’s
slide towards autocratic rule, while accusing RTS of pandering to the
ruling party and demanding more airtime for opposing views.


Children wearing masks parade during “Bele Poklade” carnival
celebrations in the village of Lozovik, some 100 km (62 miles) south of
the capital Belgrade, on March 10, 2019. “Bele Poklade” has its roots
in old pagan customs and is marked annually seven weeks before Easter.
Children walk through the village to collect eggs, and at the end jump
over a fire to banish evil demons.
