Police used a water cannon at a protest against COVID restrictions, ahead of a major European Union summit in Slovenia.

Riot police also fired tear gas to disperse the crowd.

A protest leader was reportedly detained.

The demonstration was not directly linked to the EU summit, but protesters used it as an opportunity to denounce the government’s COVID measures.

Slovenia has introduced strict steps to curb the virus.

Vaccination or proof of recovery is now mandatory for government workers.

A health pass is required to access most services, including hospitals, restaurants and, petrol stations.
