Colombia: Police Fire Tear Gas As Bogota Placed Under Curfew

Police fired tear gas to disperse protesters in Bogota on Friday, as thousands hit the streets amid fresh anti-government protests. There were also reports of sporadic looting.

In a bid to quell protesters, Bogota was placed under a curfew on Friday. The curfew is set to cover the entire capital.

The curfew comes after more than 250,000 people joined a march on Thursday, amid rumored economic reforms and growing frustration with the government of Colombian President Ivan Duque.

At least three people reportedly died in Thursday’s clashes.
