Peru: Anti-corruption protest descends into chaos on Independence Day

Patriotic sentiment on Independence Day spilled into outright anger on Friday in the capital in Lima, after recent revelations suggested members of the judiciary were guilty of corruption. Riot police fired volleys of tear gas and deployed a water cannon to prevent the march from reaching the congress building. Protesters responded with stones and other projectiles. The country has been... Еще rocked by protests after a group of investigative journalists, IDL-Reporters, published audio recordings of phone conversations which are said to implicate senior members of the judiciary in a series of corruption cases. The judges are now subject to a state investigation opened on July 9 by Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra.
