Scores of Bulgarians took to the streets of the capital Sofia on Friday, the 76th anniversary of the birth of the country's national hero, Vasil Levski.

For over a month daily rallies have been held to call for the resignation of the new government protesters accuse of being riddled with corruption.

"It's just unique, not only do I have the feeling I live in a police state but in a state which has absolutely nothing to do with its people," said one man taking part in the latest demonstrations.
