Colombia mayors move to block people from returning to work

While construction and manufacturing sectors have been allowed to restart, local leaders say it is too soon.

Mayors across Colombia have moved to block a government decision allowing some people to return to work.

The country remains under lockdown until the middle of next month – but the construction and manufacturing sectors have been allowed to restart.

Local leaders say it is too soon, and have taken matters into their own hands.
