Romanian protests enter fourth day

Anger grows amid widening demonstrations against government spending cuts and healthcare reform bill.

    Thousands of Romanians have gathered in the capital, Bucharest, and in large cities across the country for a fourth consecutive day of growing protests.

    The marches started out against a controversial healthcare reform bill and widened to include anger over government austerity measures.

    Police have fired tear gas to disperse the crowds, and dozens of people have been arrested in a bid to quell the dissent.
