Bulgarian prosecutors have requested permanent detention into police custody of four men charged with attempted murder during a scuffle between ethnic Bulgarians and Roma people in the town of Radnevo, in southern Bulgaria.
The four face jail terms of 15 to 20 years or life imprisonment if convicted.
The situation in Bulgaria is returning to normal after yesterday's floods claimed three lives and caused serious material damage throughout the country.
No new floods have been reported during the night, the head of the Chief Directorate Fire Safety and Civil Protection Nikolay Nikolov told Nova TV. Rains all over the country have subsided in the late afternoon on Saturday.
The southern Bulgarian municipality of Radnevo is virtually bankrupt, according to the Mayor, Yulian Ilchev.
In a Monday interview for the Bulgarian National Radio, Ilchev said he expected urgent assistance from the caretaker government, adding that he had sent a letter to caretaker Prime Minister Georgi Bliznashki about the problem which Radnevo was facing.
Bulgaria's Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) announced courts and prosecutor's offices have money for just to weeks and will have to stop paying their bills afterwards.
SJC representatives, quoted by Bulgarian daily Sega, have explained that no money has been given out to cover expenses since the initial budget was announced to be depleted.
