Hundreds took to the streets of the Romanian capital, Bucharest, on Friday to protest Prime Minister Victor Ponta's refusal to step down after being charged with fraud, tax evasion and money laundering when he worked as a lawyer. Romanian President Klaus Iohannis announced that he had asked Ponta to resign, but Ponta refused. The protesters remained peaceful with no reports of arrests or injuries, despite tensions remaining high.
