Filed under: Protests — newsfrettir @ 4:25 pm

Many thousand people are now in the down town of Reykjavík and the crowd is still getting rowdier. Eggs are being thrown at the house of the Parliament and earlier the Bónus flag was pulled up on the roof top of the house of the parliament. The person who pulled up the flag has been removed from the roof but the police are undermanned and the crowd is attacking the police.

The crowd has surrounded the house of the Parliament.

People have surrounded the house of the Parliament and police is backing away from angry protestants that say they have had enough.

At least two have been arrested by the police but the reporter for Morgunblaðið is at the scene and says it is a very small group of people that are attacking the Police. The house of the parliament is covered in eggs and yogurt.
