Police Put Up Metal Fences Around Parliament

Police Put Up Metal Fences Around Parliament

The police erected metal fences around Bulgaria’s Parliament Tuesday night following clashes between students protesting against the government and riot police several hours earlier.
On Tuesday several hundred students formed a chain around the National Assembly, trying to blockade the MPs inside. As the police broke the chain, several people were injured. 
According to interior ministry data, quoted by the Sofia News Agency (Novinite.com), twelve people were detained.
Protests against the Socialist-backed government of Plamen Oresharski have been going on for some five months now as protesters accuse the incumbents of corruption and bowing to oligarchic interests. 
On Wednesday students of the Sofia University said their sit-in protest at the main university building will continue.
