    More than 20,000 Croats have been protesting against plans to put up bilingual signs using the Serbian Cyrillic alphabet.

    The Social Democrat-led government, which will take the country into the European Union on July 1, wants to put up signs later this month, in both the Latin script used for Croatian and in Cyrillic, in areas where the population is more than one third ethnic Serb.
