These photos show the scene in the northern Bosnian city of Tuzla, where protesters stormed and set ablaze local government buildings in fury over unemployment and rampant corruption.

The anti-government protests that began two days ago spread throughout Bosnia, with thousands taking their discontent over the almost 40% unemployment rate onto the streets of a dozen cities.

In Tuzla, the crowd stormed the local government building, throwing furniture, files and papers out of the windows and then setting the building on fire.
