Romanians have protested in cities around the country for a third day against the government, whom they blame for austerity cuts and falling living standards.
One policeman was injured in the Romanian capital Saturday after clashes with demonstrators protesting the government’s austerity programme, AFP reported.
Hundreds of Romanians rallied in Bucharest to protest against austerity measures and planned health care reforms, calling on President Traian Basescu to quit.
Some of the protesters, chanting anti-Basescu slogans, marched towards the presidential palace, closely monitored by police.
Clashes erupted between demonstrators who blocked traffic in University Square and riot police. As demonstrators pelted police with stones, one officer suffered a head injury.
Police used tear gas on the demonstrators, witnesses told local media.
