Peru’s interim president has resigned, a day after two people died during protests against his government.
Manuel merino, former speaker of Congress, had been in the post less than a week.
He replaced President Martín Vizcarra, who last Monday was removed in an impeachment procedure over bribery allegations, which he denies.
Politicians had called for Mr Merino’s resignation after a violent crackdown on demonstrations against him.
Twelve ministers from his recently appointed cabinet resigned earlier on Sunday in protest against police brutality and his handling of the crisis.
Congress failed to agree on a replacement for Mr merino when it met on Sunday, rejecting a team led by Rocío Silva Santisteban, a writer and former human rights activist.
