SARAJEVO, Feb 7 (Reuters) - Protesters set fire to a section of the presidency building in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo on Friday, the third day of violent protests against economic and political stagnation in the Balkan country.

A Reuters reporter on the scene said protesters had smashed windows and threw a flare into the building despite special police's efforts to disperse them with water cannon.
