Civil unrest in Peru

The fourth demonstration since December against new labour laws revoking some worker rights occurred in 11 cities. Thousands of Peruvians in the capital city of Lima clashed with security forces who used tear gas against the demonstrators. Sixteen police officers were injured, one seriously, and 20 people were arrested.

Travellers should avoid all public and political gatherings since they may become violent without notice.
