Two more people were killed in week-long clashes in Lima, bringing the death toll to four as police battled locals to shut down a market. Over 100 were arrested in what the mayor dubbed a mission to bring order to a neighborhood of “chaos and filth.”
Violence in Lima over the past week has claimed a total of four lives as city authorities attempted to close the newly established market 'La Parada.' The city council increased the police presence in the area in a bid to stem the riots.
“We have deployed 5,000 police officers – 3,200 in the market itself and 1,200 on the border of the Gamarra trading area [La Parada],” chief of police Raul Salazar said.
