Peru’s President Boluarte calls for truce as protests flare in Lima

Peru’s President, Dina Boluarte, called for a nationwide ceasefire after violent protests broke out in the country’s capital, Lima.

Protests across Peru are ongoing and dozens of people have been killed.

Protests began in the country in December, when the former leftist president, Pedro Castillo, was impeached.

Castillo’s supporters are calling for his release, where he is facing sedition and conspiracy charges.

In a televised address on Tuesday, President Boluarte said the protests had cost infrastructure and output $1.3 billion (£1.56 billion).
