BELGRADE, February 8. /ITAR-TASS/. In Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, anti-terrorist brigades help the police appease the demonstrators. The police of Bosnia and Herzegovina confirmed this information.
The government and Prime Minister of the town of Tuzla have resigned on demands of demonstrators. The clashes have begun in the center of Tuzla, and entered their third day on February 7. Protesters in Mostar have set on fire the building of the city government. Government buildings in Sarajevo and Zenica have also been set on fire.
Local media report that measures aimed at appeasing demonstrators have brought their results. The number of protesters considerably decreased. In Sarajevo, up to 50 people were injured, three of them – critically, and hospitalized.
In the last three days, Bosnia and Herzegovina has seen the largest demonstrations since the 1990s. Protests were sparked by high rates of unemployment, which stand at 27.5%. Among the demonstrators are mostly workers who lost their jobs, they demand to review the results of “botched privatizations”.
