Mihail Mikov, the speaker, said MPs should stay away until calm returned to the streets following violence outside the parliament that erupted when demonstrators prevented a bus carrying three government ministers and number of MPs from leaving.

The politicians and officials were trapped inside for more than eight hours before police broke up the blockade outside. Around 20 people were injured in scuffles.
