The tiny, impoverished Balkan nation of Albania emerged Friday as a likely location where Syria's chemical weapons stockpile could be destroyed.
Tens of thousands of Albanians holding flowers and candles marched silently through Albania's capital Friday in a peaceful anti-government demonstration to honor three opposition supporters shot dead during a protest last week.
Three people were killed and dozens were injured in extensive anti-government clashes outside the prime minister's office in the Albanian capital Friday, in the worst violence to erupt in the volatile Balkan country in more than a decade.
Albania's prime minister, Edi Rama, said on his Facebook page that he will respond to a U.S. request for Albania to destroy the weapons at 1600 GMT (11 a.m. EST) — a half-hour before an OPCW meeting to endorse the destruction plan was to reconvene.
Rama says Blair will assist as an adviser in Albania's efforts to join the 28-nation European Union.
