Bosnian Protesters Demand Early Elections
Protesters in Bosnia and Herzegovina are calling for snap elections as nearly 1,000 people gathered in the capital Sarajevo Sunday evening for a 5th consecutive day.
The wave of demonstrations started on Wednesday in Bosnia's northern town of Tuzla, where workers took to the streets to oppose the closure of companies sold off by the state.
More than 130 people, including 104 police officers, were injured in the unrests.
Sunday's protests were mostly peaceful, and those detained were eventually let free, Euronews reports.
The protests were sparked by the nation's almost 40 percent unemployment rate and rampant corruption, as well as the lack of economic and political progress.
