Border between Peru and Bolivia blocked by protesters

Demonstrators have prevented travelers from crossing a border between Peru and Bolivia after protesting to demand snap elections.

Peru has been in turmoil since early December when former President Pedro Castillo was indicted hours after he tried to dissolve parliament.

The country now has its first female president, Dina Boluarte, but many are protesting to demand her resignation and the closure of Congress.

More than 20 people were killed in the protests.
