Civil Unrest - impeachment of Paraguayan president called "coup d'etat" (warning)

The Paraguayan Senate has impeached the president and installed the vice-president as interim head of government in a process labeled as a “coup d'etat” by neighbouring governments that have said they will not recognize the newly installed government. There were some initial public protests involving police who used water cannons to control the crowd.

Until the political situation in Paraguay stabilizes, travellers to Asuncion should exercise caution and avoid all public and political demonstrations since the may become violent without notice.
