Police in Bolivia abandon posts and join in protests


Police in Bolivia have rebelled against the government, abandoning their posts and marching through the streets along with protesters. It’s a sign of growing anger over alleged voter fraud in last month’s election. Protests since the poll have resulted in three deaths. The government says a coup is in progress, and accused the police of abandoning “their constitutional role.”
