Bosnia Protest Photos: This Is What Furious Protesters Look Like

Posted: Updated:

"History in the making" -- that's how Al Jazeera correspondent Marko Pavlovic described today's protests in Bosnia to HuffPostLive.

Thousands of Bosnians took their discontent over unemployment and government corruption to the streets for a third day on Friday, with protest marches rocking at least three cities. The Associated Press reports that groups of furious demonstrators clashed with police and attacked local government buildings. Nearly 200 people were injured in the clashes.

Just take a look at the photos below for a glimpse into the fury of the demonstrators.

And can we blame them? Bosnia's middle class is decimated, many in the working class are living in poverty, while tycoons are flourishing.
