Protesters stormed government buildings in Bosnia on Friday, setting them alight and smashing up furniture, as anger over the dire state of the economy boiled over.With demonstrations planned in more than 20 towns and thousands of protesters on the streets of Tusla and Sarajevo on Friday, the protests mark the largest outbreak of public anger in the Balkan country of 3.8 million people since the end of the 1992-1995 war.Sakib Kopic, one of the workers' representatives, said the protests were a "the people's answer" to the government's failure to address the ongoing economic decline.More than 130 people were injured in clashes between police and protesters in the city on Thursday, and on Friday the city's schools remained shut for fear of further violence.
