Watch part twoDozens have been killed in recent clashes between indigenous protestors and police in Peru.The protestors are opposing land reform laws that are designed to open up parts of the country to international investors.The resulting political turmoil has seen the approval ratings of Alan Garcia, the Peruvian president, slip to just 21 per cent and Yehude Simon, the country's prime minister, says he will step down in response to opposition demands.In an effort to appease native tribal groups, last week Peru's congress repealed two of the land reform laws.
