  1. Boc visit marked by demonstration

    ROMANIA: Hundreds of anti-cuts protesters confronted Prime Minister Emil Boc as he visited the western city of Timisoara today.

    Demonstrators chanted: “Down with the Boc government” and “Corruption is everywhere” outside a meeting of the premier’s Democratic Liberal Party.

    Police spokeswoman Madalina Mezdrea said four people had been detained for leaving the authorised protest area.

    Mr Boc has slashed public-sector salaries and cut public services in an “austerity programme” imposed in 2009 in return for a €20 billion (£17bn) EU bailout loan.
