Protest in Paraguay

Violent protests have broken out in Paraguay after government ordered part of country back lockdown.

The Paraguayan city of Ciudad del Este has faced civil unrest following the government’s decision to strengthen quarantine measures, the ABC TV channel reported on Thursday.

On Wednesday, the government declared a return to the full COVID-19 quarantine in the department of Alto Parana, located at the border with Brazil. Thirty percent of all fatalities in the country are said to have occurred in that department. The decision, however, triggered protests, which soon turned into riots and violent clashes with the police during the night.

Hundreds of people took to the streets of Ciudad del Este to express their anger. There are reports that shops were looted and lorries set on fire, a number of police injured
