LA PAZ – Bolivian officials have flown basic provisions into this capital amid reports of food and fuel shortages.
The system was a move to bypass road blockades erected by supporters of former president Evo Morales who resigned on Nov. 10 and fled to Mexico after facing claims of electoral fraud.
Interim President Jeanine Áñez on Sunday said she would call new “transparent” elections soon to help re-establish the country’s “democratic credibility.”
At least 23 people were killed in the ongoing political unrest.
Protests have continued in many places, particularly around Cochabamba, where violent clashes between security forces and coca growers left nine dead on Friday.(BBC)
