Five police officers were injured today in this capital by dynamite attacks during a demostration by the Bolivian Central Workers Union as told by Bolivian Interior Minister Carlos Romero.
Romero said the policemen were object of the violence by a group of people who threw dynamite cartridges during a protest demanding a salary increase.
Among the injured that were transferred to a clinic, there is a lieutenant colonel and a sergeant.
Romero presented photos of those groups involved in the riot with bags of dynamite cartridges, which were distributed before reaching the Murillo Plaza.
The Bolivian Central Workers Office (COB) started a 48-hour strike to demand a salary increase of over 7 percent, which is the one offered by the government of President Evo Morales.
That is why miners, university teachers and doctors made a demostration from the city of El Alto to the surroundings of the Government Palace.
