Massive Demonstration tonight outside the presidential palace

A crowd of around 15000 people gathered tonight outside the presidential palace in Nicosia, in the biggest protest since the deadly explosion at the Naval Base at Mari. The demonstrators were calling for President Demetris Christofias to step down and for the ones responsible to be brought to justice. The demonstration started with the crowd gathering at Eleftheria Square and then marching to the presidential palace holding banners and signs with slogans against the current administration. During the gathering, signatures were being collected for a petition calling the government to resign.
