    Members of Bulgaria’s nationalist party Ataka protested outside the US Embassy in Sofia on the 70th anniversary of an Allied bombing raid.

    They want a monument honouring US airman who died in the Second World War in action over Sofia removed. They say it’s humiliating.

    Their demonstration ended with a minute’s silence at a war memorial to Bulgarian airmen.
