[PICTURES] Valletta under siege

As protests calling on the Prime Minister to resign intensify, police have been putting up barriers to keep the crowds at a distance from Parliament and Auberge de Castille

These have been an intense two weeks with protests calling for the Prime Minister’s resignation growing bigger and becoming more agitated.

Valletta has been the centre of these large manifestations, with protesters gathering almost daily in front of Parliament and the Office of the Prime Minister at Castille.

To keep protesters far away as possible from the buildings and prevent close encounters with MPs and government functionaries, police have been erecting metal barriers. These are the scenes this morning in Valletta as the capital faces yet another siege.
