60 arrested as Bulgaria’s largest anti-government protest in 2 months descends into violence (VIDEO)

Thousands took to the streets of the Bulgarian capital, Sofia on Wednesday to demand the resignation of longtime Prime Minister Boyko Borissov. The rally was marred by clashes between demonstrators and police.
The protest outside the parliament building started peacefully, with people carrying Bulgarian flags and chanting, “resign” and “mafia,” referring to the PM’s alleged ties to the country’s influential oligarchs.

But after dark, some tried to break through to the parliament, which was heavily guarded by officers in full riot gear. Demonstrators threw firecrackers and other objects, including eggs, apples, and garbage, at the cops. They also shook police cars and used pepper spray against the police, with around a hundred officers affected.
