Bulgaria marks holiday with mass protests

National celebration becomes day of public outcry against government corruption and rampant poverty.

    Bulgarians have marked their national holiday with more mass rallies against poverty and government corruption.

    It was the third week of such demonstrations. Meanwhile, the president grapples with a political crisis after the centre-right government resigned last week.
