Paraguay farmers demand land reform

Some 90 percent of the country's farmland is owned by 2 percent of the population.

    Thousands of Paraguayan farmers have gathered outside the country's Congress in Asucion to vent their frustration at President Horacio Cartes, who they say has failed to deliver on land reform promises.

    In Paraguay, arable land is in the hands of the few and multinational companies control most of the soy bean and beef industry - the country's main products.

    Cartes took office nearly eight months ago but has yet to make good on land reform promises.
