Bulgaria: Protest in Sofia

Maya Markova of Maya's Corner posts a report on the Jan. 14 rally and rioting in Sofia: “Participants and eye-witnesses say that protesters were given absolutely no order or warning, that they were beaten indiscriminately, including children, women (see photo), elderly people and people already lying on the ground, that police chased people to closed streets and alleys, presumably to prevent them from escaping unhurt.”
