Protests in Romania over unpopular austerity measures

Protests have continued in Romanian cities reflecting widespread anger against the unpopular government.

The demonstrations, in their 4th day, are the result of frustration against public wage cuts, higher taxes and widespread corruption.

Hundreds of people of all ages gathered to protest in Bucharest’s University Square, a day after demonstrators clashed with police there.

The crowd called for early elections.

Protests began on Thursday in support of a health official who resigned because he opposed government health care reforms.
