Peruvian Protests Grow On 3rd Day Despite Police Brutality

On the 3rd day of demonstrations in Peru, government forces attacked protesters and press alike, injuring at least 26 members of the press and killing an untold number of protesters, with at least 1 confirmed death. Tens of thousands had gathered in Plaza San Martín, the center of the capital of the country in front of Parliament to denounce the removal of President Vizcarra. Undercover policemen were also spotted and exposed in Lima.

Police Brutality in Lima

Police injured hundreds of protesters, killing at least one, and injured more than 26 reporters. One policeman was seen undercover and fired a weapon with live rounds at a crowd in order to get away. Others fired shotguns at fleeing protesters, leading many to believe that the death toll is higher than it seems.
