The protests in Paraguay against the government’s management of the pandemic ended this Friday in violent clashes.

The security forces launched rubber bullets and tear gas protesters in downtown Asunción, while a group of people broke down police barriers, set fires and threw stones at officers, local press reported.

The altercations left a score of wounded and turned the historic center of the capital into a kind of battlefield, in the midst of the growing indignation of the population due to the increase in coronavirus cases and the lack of medicines and vaccines.


Downtown Asunción became a kind of battlefield.

“It is a pity that the young people have exceeded themselves and destroyed what was a civic party“Interior Minister Arnaldo Giuzzio told the Telefuturo news channel.
