Activists who set up roadblocks and burned tires in the Puno region in the south of the country clashed with security forces.

10 soldiers and 16 demonstrators were injured in the incidents. Many people were detained.

The police responded with tear gas and water cannon to the demonstrators, who threw Molotov cocktails and stones at him.

In the capital Lima, union representatives, students and locals experienced tension with the police.

In the southeastern city of Juli, Peru, protesters clashed with the police and reportedly set a police station on fire.

According to the Peruvian press, the death toll in the demonstrations since 11 December 2022 has exceeded 64 and the number of injured has exceeded 1,800.

The demonstrators demand the resignation of President Dina Boluarte, the closure of Congress and the immediate holding of early elections.

Protests in Peru began after former President Pedro Castillo was impeached by Congress on December 7, 2022.
