Romania: Thousands join anti-government rally after fierce clashes

Thousands of people joined an anti-government rally in Bucharest on Saturday just one day after more than 400 people were injured. The protest outside the government offices started peacefully. On Friday, more than 50,000 protesters hit the streets to demonstrate against the ruling Social Democrat (PSD) government and denounce what they describe as «corruption, low wages and a corrupt... Еще judiciary.» As the demonstration escalated, protesters threw bottles while riot police deployed tear gas and water cannon. Several police officers were also injured. Romanian President Klaus Iohannis later condemned police action in a Facebook statement, saying, «I firmly condemn riot police's brutal intervention, strongly disproportionate to the actions of the majority of people.»
