More than 150 people were wounded in Bosnia on Friday when protestors stormed government buildings and clashed with riot police as anger over the dire state of the economy boiled over.With unemployment at 44 percent and one in five people living below the poverty line, Bosnians have taken to the streets to protest the authorities' failure to address the economic situation. Some 3,000 people took to the streets in the central town of Zenica, once the seat of powerful mining industry, where state news agency Fena said more than 50 were wounded in clashes between protestors and police.The demonstrations in more than 20 Bosnian towns were the biggest show of unrest to hit the Balkan country of 3.8 million people since the 1992-1995 war. More than 130 people were injured in clashes between police and protestors in the city on Thursday, and on Friday the city's schools remained shut for fear of further violence.
