Riot police and protestors clash in Romania

Help

There have been clashes between demonstrators and riot police in Romania, after thousands took to the streets for a third day.

The protests in the capital Bucharest are against government cuts and falling living standards.

The gathered crowds are calling for early elections and the resignation of President Traian Basescu, who came to power in 2004.
