Riot police block protesters at the entrance of newly built Cvjetni shopping mall in Zagreb

Riot police block protesters at the entrance of the newly built Cvjetni shopping mall during its grand opening ceremony at the square in central Zagreb April 7, 2011. The building of the shopping mall has sparked mass public protests, leading to several hundred arrests in the last two years, by Zagreb residents who believe corrupt local politicians allowed private investors to go ahead with the project at the expense of public interests.
