An angry crowd of around 1,000 Bulgarian demonstrators, some throwing eggs and tomatoes, blockaded parliament on Wednesday in a 13th straight day of anti-government protests.
Because only 112 out of 240 lawmakers braved it through the protesters who were shouting "Mafia!" and "Resignation!" outside the parliament building in central Sofia, the session was cancelled.
Deputy parliamentary speaker and Socialist party lawmaker Maya Manolova was pelted with missiles after trying to address the angry crowd, who then prevented MPs from leaving even after the session was scrapped.
