Guarding the headquarters

Hundreds of Romanian soldiers and 12 armored personnel carriers were deployed around the headquarters of the provisional government on Monday, a day after hundreds of protesters stormed the building in Victory Square and held it for about three hours, smashing windows and briefly holding Deputy Prime Minister Gelu Voican-Voiculescu.
