Student protests ended in clashes with riot police outside the Universidad Pedagogica in Bogota on Thursday.
Demonstrators launched Molotov cocktails, fireworks and projectiles at riot police, who responded with tear gas and water cannon. Streets in the surrounding area were closed to traffic as a result of rioting.
Students were marching against President Ivan Duque's National Development Plan... Еще (NDP), which seeks to implement cuts to education budgets and pensions with more money ploughed into national security. The NDP also approved fracking in Colombia for the first time, provoking the ire of the environmental lobby.
