Serbia: thousands rally in fourth week of anti-government protests

Around 25,000 protesters turned out for a fourth week of anti-government demonstrations in Belgrade, piling more pressure on the Serbian president, Aleksandar Vu?i?.

“This is a citizens’ demonstration against the situation in the country, which has been economically and politically complicated, even critical, for a long time,” protester Vladimir Toši? said at the rally on Saturday.

The demonstrators marched without incident or overt signs of political affiliation in the centre of the capital, with some chanting “Vu?i? thief”, or waving placards that said “Enough lies”.

Many blew whistles, a symbol of Serb protests since strongman Slobodan Miloševi? held power in the 1990s.
