Bulgarian man sets himself alight outside president's offices

A 51-year-old man is in a critical condition after becoming the fourth in Bulgaria to set himself on fire in public in recent weeks.

He did so outside the president’s offices as a new interim government was appointed.

His reasons are not clear, but at least one protest movement is making a link with anger at poverty and corruption.
