A historic building in Lima’s historic center caught fire late on Thursday (January 19), as unrest spread across the Peruvian capital.
Firefighters battled to contain the blaze that had consumed the building.
This comes after thousands of protesters led anti-government protest in Lima, angered by a mounting death toll since unrest erupted last month and calling for sweeping change.
Police estimated the march at around 3,500 people, but others speculated it attracted more than double that.
