Moldovan riot police have regained control of the president’s office and parliament after they were ransacked by protesters claiming that parliamentary elections were rigged.
About 100 riot police surround the buildings in Chisinau early today.
Protesters had stormed both buildings a day earlier. They set fire to furniture and hurled computers out of the windows.
Police abandoned the parliament and president’s office to protesters.
Communist President Vladimir Voronin has accused pro-European opposition parties of being behind the protests that left more than 50 injured.
His Communist Party won about 50% of the vote in Sunday’s elections.
