PODGORICA -- Police in Montenegro's capital, Podgorica, have fired tear gas and stun grenades to disperse hundreds of stone-hurling antigovernment demonstrators.

The protesters were demanding the resignation of the government of long-serving Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic.

They accuse his government of rampant corruption and unemployment and economic mismanagement.

Several policemen and demonstrators were injured and at least 10 protesters were detained in the February 15 violence.

The protest, organized on social media, is voicing solidarity with Bosnian antigovernment demonstrators who earlier this month stormed into the country's presidency and other government buildings in Sarajevo and set them ablaze over similar demands.
