In the capital Lima, officials fired tear gas into the crowd on Friday and government opponents hurled stones, as was seen on television. Around 11,800 police officers were on duty, police chief Victor Zanabria said. Dozens of people have died in Peru since the protests began in December.

“I regret the dead and injured,” said the special envoy of the UN human rights commissioner, Christian Salazar Volkmann, on Friday after a meeting with government officials. “We have also asked the government for information on how they intend to investigate these cases and prevent them in the future.”
