In a peaceful gesture after days of violent protests, Bosnians have swept up rubble in the northern city of Tuzla left over from the rioting.

But many are still furious over the nearly 40-percent unemployment rate and privatizations after the 1992-95 war that enriched a few tycoons and impoverished most of the middle class.

Hundreds gathered in peaceful demonstrations Saturday in the capital, Sarajevo, and other cities. On Friday, protesters set fire to government buildings in several cities, including the Bosnian presidency in Sarajevo.

In Tuzla, where the riots started Tuesday, people appeared with brooms and cleaned up stones and other wreckage.

The local governments in four cities, including Sarajevo, have resigned amid the unrest.
