Bulgaria: Anti govt. demonstrators egg Council of Ministers building in 16th day of protests

Anti-government demonstrators threw eggs at the Council of Ministers building in Sofia, on Friday, on the 16th consecutive day of protests. Crowds of people rallied in the city centre of the Bulgarian capital to demand the resignation of Prime Minister Boyko Borissov and Chief prosecutor Ivan Geshev amid accusations of corruption and widespread political mismanagement of the country. Later in the evening, protesters held a blockade outside the building of the public service broadcaster, Bulgarian National Television. Police were seen escorting Korneliya Ninova, a member of the Bulgarian National Assembly who was participating in a talk show at the channel, out of the building. They were surrounded by protesters who booed her. A no-confidence vote against the government was held on Tuesday, which it survived. In an attempt to appease the protesters, Borissov had announced the resignation of four of his ministers, including the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Economy, the Interior ministry and the Ministry of Tourism.
