The physical fight between opposition PDK MPs and their ministers at the Kosovo Assembly plenary session yesterday was spread over the pages of international media such as BBC, Daily Mail, Sky News and Global News.
The fighting and brawling in the Kosovo Assembly created a huge impact in the world press.
Politico used this headline in its article about the events at the Kosovo Assembly today, “The big fight in the Kosovo Assembly because of the Pinocchio cartoon and the water flowing over the PM.”
In a BBC bulletin titled ‘Fists in the Air’, it was reported that MPs were meeting each other and the prime minister got wet from the water that was thrown.
Sky News also linked the fight to criticism of the opposition. He noted that the conflict erupted as he criticized the Kosovo government for its political course in the northern part of Kosovo, which led to a deterioration in relations with Kosovo’s prominent international allies.
The Daily Mail, using the headline “Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti splashed water during his speech in parliament,” wrote that a mass brawl broke out immediately after the deputies got into a physical altercation.
Global News reported that while Kosovo’s Prime Minister Albin Kurti was speaking in Parliament on Thursday, a picture with Pinocchio’s nose was placed on the podium in front of him by opposition MPs.
