Violent protests: Paraguay president fires minister, top security chief

Paraguay’s President Horacio Cartes has sacked the interior minister and the chief of police after violent protests on Friday against a bill that would allow the president to run for a second term in office.

The protesters stormed the congress and set fire to the building.

The authorities have arrested four police officers after a protester, Rodrigo Quintana, was killed.

Political leaders on Saturday paid their respects to the dead man.

His body was laid out at the headquarters of the opposition liberal party in the capital, Asuncion.

They condemned the killing and called for an investigation into his death.
