Bulgarian Police Refers 11 to Prosecution after Riots in Front of Parliament
11 people have been referred to the prosecution for resorting to violence in last Wednesday's anti-government rally in Bulgarian capital Sofia.
Tensions September 4 flared when protesters tried to break through fences erected by the police.
This led to small clashes with law enforcement officers.
"Three criminal prosecutions have already started - 2 for the July riots, and one for last week," announced Bulgaria's Chief Prosecutor Sotir Tsatsarov Thursday.
Last Wednesday morning protesters gathered in front of Parliament to "welcome" MPs after the end of their summer recession.
Protests against the new cabinet of PM Plamen Oresharski started June 14 and have been on for close to 3 months, albeit in recently abating numbers.
