From February to March 2012, there was a wave of inter-ethnic and inter-religious violence throughout Macedonia. On February 28, a policeman killed two ethnic Albanians in Gostivar, (western Macedonia) after the policeman stated he was attacked by the Albanians for refusing to park in a different location.On March 7, five persons were beaten in a bus in the capital, Skopje.On March 10, several acts of violence were recorded in Skopje and Tetovo. In Skopje, a group of youngsters, ethnic Albanians, beat a 66-year-old. In addition, a wooden bridge over the Vardar River was burned. In Tetovo, ethnic Albanians beat a 16-year-old girl. Also, a policeman was physically assaulted. Five people were arrested.On late April 12, four young men were abducted and killed in an execution-style killing near the capital, Skopje. A fifth man was killed soon afterwards, possibly because he witnessed the event. The dead were confirmed as being ethnic Macedonian, and anti-Albanian protests erupted soon afterwards.
