U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE
The American Embassy in Sofia issued the following announcement to
Americans in Bulgaria on January 15:
Office of the Spokesman
"During recent weeks there have been large public demonstrations in
Sofia and other Bulgarian cities. These demonstrations have become
a daily affair and are expected to continue. Organizers have called
for public participation in daily protests from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm
at Nevski Square in Sofia, though times and places may vary without
notice. A demonstration on January 10 involved violent clashes
between participants and police. There may also be strikes
disrupting some public services. The Embassy advises all Americans
to exercise caution and to avoid those areas of Sofia and other
cities where demonstrations are likely to occur.
For updated information Americans may contact the Consular Section
of the U.S. Embassy, located at Number 1 Kapitan Andreev Street,
