Slovenia protest adds pressure to crumbling government

LJUBLJANA- Some 20,000 Slovenians took to the streets on Friday, adding pressure on a crumbling conservative government that is struggling to stay in power and avoid a bailout.
Prime Minister Janez Jansa is clinging to power despite the departure of two junior coalition partners which deprived him of a majority and which may force early elections in the troubled euro zone member.
Earlier on Friday, some 9,000 people took to the streets to support Jansa who was abandoned by his partners after an anti-corruption commission report said he was unable to explain the origin of some of his income.
