Online Community Prevents Murder Cover-Up

As announced, the protests against brutal killing of a young man on Sunday continued on June 7, 2011, in Skopje, Macedonia. They were non-violent and participants were proactive in self-regulating anything that could be interpreted as provocation toward the police, including insulting shouts by ‘embedded' groups of sports fans.
The police announced they would monitor social networks for troublemakers.
