Thousands of workers have taken to the streets of the Bosnian capital Sarajevo, calling on the government to do more to turn around the country’s economic woes.

It is the first major demonstration since the end of the war in the mid 1990s.

Protesters are threatening to stage a series of strikes if the business climate and employment levels do not improve.

A recently agreed budget sets out unpopular wage and spending cuts, linked to securing a new IMF loan deal.
