LA PAZ, Bolivia
Supporters of ousted Bolivian leader Evo Morales have filled the capital La Paz, carrying seven coffins of people killed in Tuesday clashes with the security forces.
The protesters on Thursday demanded the resignation of self-proclaimed interim president, Jeanine Anez, shouting slogans of “we want justice,” “killer Anez,” “peace comes if Anez goes”.
Police disbanded the group who wanted to enter Murillo Square — where the Government Palace is located — with tear gas. The confrontation lasted nearly two hours.
At least eight people were arrested and four people were slightly injured, including a small girl.
