Violence erupted in Peru on Tuesday in an anti-government protest near the Congress, six days after the "Takeover of Lima" march took place in the capital.
Clashes flared when a group of protesters stormed a street blocked by fences and a wall of riot police agents, who threw tear gas canisters to disperse the crowd.
Road blockades and clashes with security forces have ravaged the Andean country since December, leaving a death toll of upwards of 40 people and more than $1.3 million in damages, President Dina Boluarte informed Tuesday. (Reuters)
