People attend a march to commemorate the three victims of last week's deadly riots in Tirana.

Thousands of demonstrators marched through Albania's capital, Tirana, to honor three antigovernment protesters killed a week ago.

The demonstrators, headed by the leadership of the opposition Socialist Party and the families of the victims, passed in silence in front of the government buildings amid heavy police presence.

The demonstrators later dispersed peacefully. The opposition is demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Sali Berisha's government.
