Protests connected to the data leak scandal, currently being called "Panama Papers," exploded Monday. Massive crowds showed up in front of Iceland's Parliament in Reykjavik, to call on the resignation of Icelandic Prime Minister Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson and others involved in the scandal.
However, the prime minister does not appear to be ready to give up his position. "I have not considered quitting because of this matter nor am I going to quit because of this matter," Gunnlaugsson said, according to the Associated Press. "The government has had good results. Progress has been strong and it is important that the government can finish its work."
The following images and videos are from the protests Monday, that included the arrest of a protester who allegedly threw Skyr yogurt, according to the Iceland Monitor.
