Third day of violent protests in Bosnia-Hercegovina

Demonstrators in Bosnia-Hercegovina have set fire to government buildings as violent protests continue across the country for a third day.

Police have used rubber bullets and tear gas against protesters in the capital Sarajevo and the northern town of Tuzla.

The protesters are unhappy about economic and political progress in the Balkan country. It is the worst unrest since the end of the Bosnian war.

Journalist Sead Numanovic spoke to the BBC and said that "poverty and injustice" were fuelling the protests.
