print   ·   T  T  

Demonstrators who have conducted for 35 straight days anti-government protests in Bulgaria’s capital, Sofia, are now calling for a round-the-clock blockade of the Parliament building. Protesters clogged streets in downtown Sofia on Thursday causing chaos in the busy midday traffic. Shouting “Resignation” and “Mafia”, they demand the dissolution of Parliament and new elections to be called. Police have cordoned off the building with iron fences. The government took office after the May 12 early elections following the resignation of the previous Cabinet amid anti-austerity protests. — AP
