Protests continued for a sixth straight day in Romania on Sunday (November 8) as the death toll from a fire at a rock concert in a night club nine days ago reached 45.

Four people died on Sunday from burns and organ failure due to inhaling toxic fumes, doctors said.

The fire, which broke out when fireworks set insulation foam ablaze, triggering a stampede towards the single exit and trapping many inside, triggered nationwide protests that have led to the resignation of the leftist government.

While the number of protesters fell at the weekend, to an estimated 1,000 in Bucharest, President Klaus Iohannis was at the rally in the capital's downtown on Sunday.
