October 13, 2015 at 23:00 GMT +00:00 · Published

Albin Kurti, the Kosovan MP who was arrested near Caglavica earlier on Monday, told a group of supporters in Pristina following his release that he was arrested without official documentation, branding the act "arbitrary" and politically motivated.

Before authorities released Kurti, dozens of protesters threw stones at Pristina's main police station and chanted his name, demanding his release.

The founder of opposition party "Self-Determination," Kurti opened a tear gas canister inside parliament last week in protest against government plans to grant more powers to Kosovo's Serb population.
