King Zog I returns to Albania 51 years after dying in France:
Albania’s Socialist opposition is to boycott Saturday’s interment, accusing the right-wing government of “manipulating” Zog’s controversial heritage for its own political purposes. Zog’s grandson, Prince Leka, serves as a political adviser to Albanian President Bujar Faik Nishani.
King Zog’s remains are due to be placed in a newly built mausoleum for the royal family tomorrow. Albania is currently celebrating the centenary of its independence from the Ottoman Empire.
