Clashes between protesting students and police erupted in Sofia on Friday afternoon at an anti-government rally.
The young people blocked street intersections in downtown Sofia, letting only ambulances through their fence of bodies.
Policemen had to form a human chain to push the protestors out and bring traffic back to normal.
