The latest on the fire in a Romanian nightclub that killed more than 30 people, and the political crisis it has set off.

More than 10,000 people have gathered for a second day in Bucharest and cities around Romania calling for early elections after Prime Minister Victor Ponta and his government resigned in the wake of a deadly nightclub fire.

Protesters massed late Wednesday in University Square in downtown Bucharest, a traditional site for anti-government rallies, calling for early elections and better governance.

Calling on others to join the protest, they yelled: "Get out of your homes if you care!" And "Don't be afraid, the country is rising up!"

They marched later toward the Parliament. Protesters also took to the streets in the cities of Cluj, Timisoara and Constanta.
