Inflation in Peru: clashes between civilians and police at protests in Peru

Protests were held across Peru due to rising prices for oil, gas and toll roads.

On Monday, the country went on a nationwide strike in response to inflation rising to a 26-year high.

Protesters set up roadblocks with burning tires and burned down toll booths in the city of Ica.

As a result of clashes with the police, some demonstrators were detained. The government says it is taking steps to curb rising fuel prices, including through subsidies.
