Bitter divides in Bolivia over president’s re-election

Protesters alleging electoral fraud call on President Evo Morales to resign amid violent clashes between the two camps.

Violent clashes between pro- and anti-government protesters have taken place amid calls for Bolivian President Evo Morales to step down.

Morales claimed victory in last month’s disputed election, triggering widespread protests.
