From Reuters. Here is an excerpt:
Mongolian protesters clashed with police as they tried to storm parliament after thousands gathered in freezing temperatures to demonstrate against soaring inflation and government corruption.
The protests began in the capital Ulaanbaatar on Sunday, triggered by allegations that surfaced two months ago of government officials profiting from illegal sales of coal to China, independent broadcaster TenGer TV said.
Demonstrators clashed with police on Monday in front of the Government Palace where parliament sits. Large crowds were seen chanting slogans, demanding officials come out and face the people.
