Bulgarian police break down blockade in front of parliament

Police in Bulgaria have dismantled a blockade of parliament put up by anti-government protestors on Tuesday night.

More than 100 politicians, journalists and staff who were trapped in the building were eventually able to leave in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

The unrest fell on the 40th straight day of protests against corruption and mismanagement in the capital Sofia.
