Bulgaria: anti-government protests approach one-month mark

Text size Aa Aa

Anti-government protesters have been demonstrating in the Bulgarian capital Sofia for a twenty-sixth day.

The protests were initially triggered by the appointment of media mogul Delyan Peevski as national security chief.

That decision was reversed, but campaigners still want the government to resign.

Critics accuse the Socialist-led administration of Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski of corruption and a lack of transparency.
