Fresh anti-government protests hit Reykjavik

Hundreds of angry voters protest against the new government in front of the Parliament House in Reykjavik, Iceland, on April 8, 2016Thousands of Icelanders rallied in Reykjavik on Saturday to demand immediate elections on a sixth consecutive day of anti-government protests over the “Panama Papers” revelations which have already toppled the prime minister. Prime Minister Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson became the first political casualty of the scandal as he was forced to cave in to protestors’ demands for his resignation over revelations that he and his wife owned an offshore company in the British Virgin Islands and had placed millions of dollars of her inheritance there. The issue is particularly sensitive in Iceland following the 2008 collapse of the nation’s three main banks, which plunged the country into a deep recession and left thousands mired in debt.
