Thousands protest in Bulgaria, dismissing PM’s olive branch

Thousands of people protested in Bulgaria for a third day yesterday in a show of anger against the government, dismissing the prime minister’s bid to calm public outrage by reversing a controversial appointment of the country’s top security chief.

About 15,000 protesters gathered outside the government headquarters in downtown Sofia this evening, according to police estimates. Smaller protests were also held in a handful of other cities.

Many were waving Bulgarian flags and shouting “Mafia!”, “Resign!”, and “Red garbage!” in what amounted to the biggest rallies in the past three days.
