Another day of anti-government protests in Sofia on Wednesday evening as speculations about the violence a day earlier still linger on.
Thousands of Bulgarians have once again taken to the streets of Bulgaria’s capital to demand the resignation of the country's government for the forty-first day in a row.
Many are waving the national flag and banners. People are blowing whistles, hissing, and shouting "resignation."
The series of anti-government protests in Bulgaria was triggered more than a month ago by the scandalous appointment of controversial media mogul Delyan Peevski as Chair of the State Agency for National Security (DANS).
Although the appointment was revoked, the people went on to demand that the cabinet of PM Plamen Oresharski resign collectively over its ties with oligarchs.
Tensions escalated on Tuesday evening when protesters blocked the doors of Bulgaria's parliament, trapping inside more than 100 politicians, journalists and staff.
Demonstrators clashed with riot police in Sofia, the capital, on the 40th day of anti-government rallies.
