Bulgaria's religious leaders have called for calm after the Balkan country's worst civil unrest for more than a decade.

Hundreds of people have protested in cities across the country, throwing bottles and stones at police in the days that followed a dispute between a Roma leader and Bulgarian villagers.

Residents of Katunitsa blamed Roma leader Kiril Rashkov for the death of a 19-year-old man and torched several houses and cars at the weekend.
